Teen After School Special!


Supernatural Month returns! Every Wednesday in October.

We kick off our month long celebration of the hit show Supernatural with three episodes featuring one of the most interesting characters of the entire series - Death. Although Death has only been in a handful of episodes he is a fan favorite, and has been a pivotal of multiple storylines. Plus! Since we have three hours for this one we will be doing a fun craft and Hy-Vee is donating Dean's favorite snack! If you watch the show you will know what it is, if not, you will be pleasantly surprised.

It isn't often that a major American TV Show also has anime series, but Supernatural isn't just any American TV Show. That is why its creator Eric Kripke worked with Madhouse Studios (producers of Death Note), to create a full season of Supernatural the Anime. This Anime is a mixture of remakes of Supernatural episodes and original stories. For week two of Supernatural Month we will be looking at a couple of the best original stories the series has to offer.

In week three we revisit Episode 200, Fan Fiction. Also known as Supernatural the Musical! Supernatural loves its fans and this episode is definitely for the fans. So if you are ready for a good laugh, a couple of groans, and some scares, stop in for this great episode.

We conclude Supernatural Month with the Anime season finale "All Hell Breaks Loose" a two part anime that is a retelling of the dramatic season finale of Season 2 of the Supernatural series.

This event is open the teens and their guests.
