THE TOXIC AVENGER
Players By the Sea – Studio Theater
Daily Showings: October 25 (Opening Night) – November 10, 2019
Join us for a night at the theater! St. Johns Riverkeeper is proud to participate as a brand partner with Players By the Sea in the production of THE TOXIC AVENGER, a theater production that sheds light on a community’s environmental concerns, which can be directly tied to the St. Johns River and every one of us. It’s critical to talk about environmental issues through different community platforms and lenses – the environmental movement and art are inextricably linked. Now more than ever, we must be reaching different audiences to engage and help share their own stories of environmental justice, pollution, and ultimately, take action.
The TOXIC AVENGER Story:
Melvin Ferd, the Third, wants to clean up Tromaville, the most polluted town in New Jersey. Foiled by the mayor’s bullies, Melvin is dumped into a vat of radioactive toxic waste, only to reemerge as The Toxic Avenger, New Jersey’s first superhero … a seven-foot mutant freak with superhuman strength and a heart as big as Newark. He’s out to save New Jersey, end global warming, and woo the blind librarian in town.
