BunnyBoy, the 2019 Laurie Award Winner from The Growing Stage’s New Play-Reading Festival, introduces you to Peter, a sixth grader, through a series of accidents, develops superpowers and becomes Bunnyboy. Now what? Peter and his friends, Skip and Karen, discover it’s complicated being a superhero – there’s no manual. And when Bunnyboy has to face an actual super villain, the Animal Master, is he up for the task? And will he get his homework in on time?
