The Revue Stage

1601 Johnston Street

You’ve never seen superpowers like these before. Exposed to a mysterious element at birth, thirteen years later four teenagers have developed strange abilities, including snot golems and artistic shapeshifting. Now, these unexpected heroes must think creatively and use their almost-epic powers to save Dimly, Manitoba and the world. A smash hit series full of daring exploits, friendship and laughter, beloved Scholastic authors Ted Staunton and Kevin Sylvester take kids behind these off-the-wall adventures. In addition to sharing uproarious stories and engaging illustrations, they’ll invite audiences to think about their own abilities in new ways—making for a completely epic afternoon.
