Stanley Leonardo Sappovitz wants nothing more than to become a comic book artist. Currently a janitor at Wonder Comics, Stanley anxiously awaits the day that the big boss, D.C. Wunderman, will notice his drawings and discover his artistic genius. It seems like that day will never come until Wunderman invests in a shipment of magical pens, guaranteed to bring any character to life. When the staff artists unwittingly unleash the devious Doctor Shock Clock, it is up to Stanley to create a new team of superheroes. Will Star Guy, Triple Time, Blossom, and Wombat Woman have the superpowers to conquer this despicable super-villain? Only time will tell!

Please prepare: a one-minute memorized monologue or poem & come in ready to describe your favorite superhero or fictional character without saying their name and we’ll see if we can guess. Auditions will last 1 hour and 15 minutes and may include improvisation, cold reading, or movement.
If you have been cast in Comic Book Artist, you may still audition for The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, but you must list it as a conflict at your audition.
