Description:

BEYOND BELIEF: a superhero story is a high-flying family friendly musical follows two sisters as they grapple with harsh realities by creating a fantastical world of superheroes. Imagination comes to life as the sisters create extraordinary characters based on everyday heroes in their everyday lives. Our story explores what makes each of us super and how believing may be the most powerful ability we have. BEYOND BELIEF shows us how the most unlikely person can be the hero of your story and how the love of family, in every sense of the word, is resilient.

The new stage musical is written, composed, choreographed and co-produced by more than 100 Northwestern students. Undergraduate student co-chairs Jessie Jennison, Charlotte Morris, Eric Peters, Justin Tepper-- all seniors -- lead the 2017 production with artistic direction by David H. Bell, a Northwestern professor of music theatre in the School of Communication and an award-winning professional director.

“As we seek to illuminate what is extraordinary about every voice in our community, we find it only fitting to present a show that revolves around this belief.” – 2017 Waa-Mu Show Co-Chairs
