The Protagonists was once a mighty group of superheroes battling the forces of evil. Twenty years later, they find themselves battling the forces of thinning hair and menopause. But when an old nemesis re-emerges with a sinister plan, can the former superfriends pull it together to save the world again?
The Astonishing Return of… The Protagonists! is big, action-packed and hilarious. The committee thoroughly enjoyed the heroic score and found themselves rooting for the good guys all the way to the end.
