AUDITIONS FOR THE INCREDIBLE HANK

 

ONE OF US. ONE OF US. ONE OF US. Audition for “THE INCREDIBLE HANK” and become part of the New Millennium family! We are definitely not a cult!

Written & Directed by Alex B. Reynolds, this original script is full of laughs, pop-culture references, and ACTION.

“It’s 2017, and superheroes are everywhere. In the city of Sandicago, every superhero and supervillain is competing for their place in the saturated super market – all except for Hank. Hank would rather ignore his superpowers and work his normal job for the rest of his normal life. But when his office becomes the setting for a supervillain’s evil plan, Hank is dragged kicking and screaming into the super drama. Faced with pompous heroes, reckless villains, hapless cops and the hounding press, Hank reluctantly finds himself in the fight of his life – to stay normal.”

We would love to see new and familiar faces at our auditions for THE INCREDIBLE HANK! Here are the details, folks:

Rehearsals will run through March and April, with performances Friday, Saturday and Sunday matinees May 19, 2017 through June 25, 2017 with no performance on June 21 and added performance on May 24th at 8pm.

Hank Graphic

 

Join New Millennium Theatre Company as we read through our latest script in development through our Script Incubator series: The Incredible Hank.

But he’s thrown into the exciting world of superheroes and supervillains when his office becomes the staging ground for an evil plot that puts the entire country in jeopardy. Faced with famous heroes, powerful villains, ruthless cops, and the hounding press, Hank reluctantly finds himself in the fight of his life – to stay normal.

The reading will take place at Black Rock Bar (3614 N. Damen Ave.) on Monday night, January 11th. We will start at 7:30, so get there early to grab a bite to eat and a drink. We hope to see you there!
