A cast of local students present the Comic Book Artist at Tibbits Opera House Oct. 22-23 at 7 pm and Oct. 24 at 2 pm.
Comic Book Artist by Pat Lydersen is the story of Sandy Leonardo Sappovitz who wants nothing more than to become a comic book artist. When she gets a job as a janitor at Wonder Comics, she anxiously awaits the day that her boss, D.C. Wunderman, will notice her drawings and discover her artistic genius. It seems like that day will never come until Wunderman invests in a shipment of magical pens, guaranteed to bring to life any character her artists create. When the staff artists unwittingly unleash the dreaded Doctor Shock Clock, it is up to Sandy to create her own team of superheroes. Will they have the superpowers to conquer this dastardly super-villain, who can stop time with the snap of her fingers? Only time will tell! Doctor Shock Clock is off to where else but Times Square to pull off the greatest heist of all time. Watch as the egotistical Star Girl and her “Charisma Ray,” Triple Time with her super fast speed, environmentally correct Blossom with her magical sleeping potion flowers, and the slightly grouchy but goodhearted Wombat Woman combine their special powers to try to stop the dastardly deed!
Comic Book Artist will be directed by Jayne Lillis and produced by Tirsha Odisher. This production is generously sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Coldwater.
