Synopsis


Space Coast Jr./Sr. High School (Jupiter, FL; photo by Kevin Nolan).

It's 1942, and the radio drama of the White Weevil is in deep trouble. Have no fear—management has an idea to save the show: Introduce a female superhero, Mrs. Amazing! But the chauvinistic White Weevil doesn't want to give up his starring role, and the fact that they've cast his wife is driving him insane. If that weren’t bad enough, the script is a mess, his youthful ward is having a fainting fit and they're going on the air in five minutes.
