Show description and character descriptions below:

Javon Williams was just a normal kid until a freak accident gave him amazing superpowers. The only problem? The neighborhood bully, Hoody, acquired superpowers of his own — and is using them to terrorize the city! Javon must work to save the city by becoming… The Supadupa Kid! Ty Allan Jackson’s book comes alive on stage in this brand-new musical featuring one of the first-ever teenage Black superheroes in America!

CAST

JAVON WILLIAMS: Black, plays 13. Our “All-American Hero,” Javon is a bit of a geek, but sees that label as a compliment. Unconventionally handsome with a heart of gold, Javon wants to fly “under the radar,” but gets thrust into the spotlight.

DENISE WILLIAMS: All-American Baby Sister. Black, plays 10. Quick-witted and wise beyond her years, Denise may be branded as the “annoying baby sister,’ but underneath it all is a deep love for her brother — and perhaps a deeper love of annoying him!

RONALD: All-American Genius Best Friend. Black/Ethnic, plays 13. A self proclaimed ‘GENIUS,” Ronald is the “rock star” of the geek squad. His intelligence is unmatched, so he is smart enough to pick his battles and knows when to be the brains of the operation.

ERICA HARRIS: All-American “It Girl”. Black/Ethnic, plays 14. Yes, she’s popular but she uses it for good. Her “it” factor comes from the character she possesses within, not just her unconventional beauty.

HOODY: All-American Bully. Plays 14. An outcast, Hoody used to be friends with Javon when they were younger, but Hoody had to move away. He’s misunderstood and ignored.

ENSEMBLE: 5 actors, all teenagers, very diverse, play the following roles:

THE LIGHTNING BOLTS • NATALIE JOHNSTON • DOCTOR HARRIS • OFFICER WILLIAMS • PRINCIPAL DEAN • CAMERAMAN • BONITA • STUDENTS
