Gulf Shore Drama Club Presents the Adventures of a Comic Book Artist

Sandpiper Studios videotaped an amazing Musical at Gulf Shore Consolidated School in Rustico, PEI last night called ” Adventures of a Comic Book Artist”. (Book and Lyrics by Pat Lydersen and Music by Wendy Woolf.)

The 35 members of the Drama Club, have been practicing for the last 6 months and it shows! The inner actor in all of the kids were pulled out by Directors Kirsten MacLaine and Marti Hopson.

We consistently heard “I wasn’t aware that my students were this gifted!” or “I didn’t know he/she could do that in front of their peers.”

Everyone loves comic book superheroes!  The audience loved this action-packed spoof of the comic book genre complete with funny singing superheroes and dancing villains. 

The Story

Stanley Leonardo Sappovitz (Roy Murnaghan) wants nothing more than to become a comic book artist. He dreams to create heroes and villains for the comic books he loves so much.  As the janitor at Wonder Comics, he anxiously awaits the day that his boss, D.C.  Wunderman (Davis Nicholson), will see his drawings and as a result give him the chance for his superheroes to come alive on the printed page.  Stanley’s heroes come alive, all right — but not on the printed page! 

In an effort to save his dying company, Wunderman had ordered a set of magical pens that can bring to life any character drawn.  Plans go wrong and his staff of artists create the dreaded super-villain Doctor Shock Clock (Joe Moak) by mistake. It is up to Stanley to save the day with his own superheroes — Star Guy (Noah Maynard), Triple Time (Jack Quigley), Blossom (Grace Lord) and Wombat Woman (Laura MacDougall)!  Stanley’s heroes battle Shock Clock and his henchmen, the Minutos ( Sam Langdale, Addison Langley, and Jace MacPherson). In the end, they are saved by the greatest superhero of them all — Eraser Man (aka Stanley Leonardo Sappovitz)!
