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.”

Join New Millennium Theatre Company as we read through our latest script in development through our Script Incubator series: The Incredible Hank.
Hank is not special. He’s not sociable. He has a boring job, a boring life, and he likes it that way. 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!

Meet our Props Master, Videographer and Company member Alex B. Reynolds
Alex Reynolds was born in Delaware, Ohio and has been doing theatre in Chicago for 7 years. His first appearance with New Millennium Theatre was in 2010 as Iggy Pop in “The David Bowie Hepzikat Funky Velvet Flarney Solstice Spectacular Live…From Space,” and he instantly recognized a brand of theatre that inspired him. Alex has appeared in several other NMTC productions (that require a tall, skinny man), and has also lent his talents as a videographer and gore specialist. He’s thrilled to make props for a Western and eternally grateful to NMTC for giving him the chance to build Gordy the Guardian.
