The Supadupa Kid
August 5 @ 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Friday and Saturday, repeating until August 13, 2022
Barrington Stage presents a world premiere musical, The Supadupa Kid with lyrics by Sukari Jones and music by Joel Waggoner, based on the novel by Ty Allan Jackson and directed by NJ Agwuna.
Javon Williams is just a normal kid until a freak accident gives him amazing superpowers. The only problem? The neighborhood bully, Hoody, has 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 with one of the first-ever teenage Black superheroes in America.
The play will run from July 29 to August 13 at the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center. 36 Linden St., Pittsfield.
