The AudioComics Company and Starstruck come to I-Con 30

The AudioComics Company is proud to announce that on the afternoon of April 16, 2011, they will present, in association with Starstruck co-creator Elaine Lee, a world premiere audio play set in the universe of the comic book series Starstruck at I-CON 30 in Stony Brook, NY.

Written by Elaine Lee and directed by AC co-founder William Dufris, this 20 minute audio drama will unveil a previously unknown chapter in the diabolical history of Starstruck nemesis Verloona Ti, who will be portrayed by Denise (Æon Flux) Poirier, reprising her role from the critically acclaimed AudioComics release of Starstruck, adapted by Lee from the original off-off-Broadway play.

Also reprising their roles of Jimmy the Snout and NORM will be Brennan Lee Mulligan and AC co-founder Lance Roger Axt; the ladies of the NYC-based comedy troupe Pink Axe will portray the Galactic Girl Guides, with additional roles to be played specifically by I-CON attendees as part of an “I-CON talent search.” Lee, Dufris, Axt, and Poirier will also be present for panel discussions and signings of the Starstruck hardcover collection, along with legendary Starstruck artist Michael Wm. Kaluta.

This “very special episode of Starstruck” will be recorded before a live audience in the Javitz 100 theatre on the University of New York at Stony Brook campus, with two performances on the afternoon of April 16 (exact times TBA), and will be released later in the year as a free Mp3 download.

    Now THIS is cool! One of my actors and a fellow interview/genre reporter, Howard Margolin, has produced his show on the Stony Brook campus for the last nearly 30 years. I’m sure he’ll want to and will be involved in this!

    Alan: how Howard can get in touch with us:

    “If you are attending I-CON and want to be considered as an actor in this production, please do the following: submit a short Mp3 audition piece showing us that you can do character voices.

    “You can dramatize a favorite passage from a sci-fi novel or comic book/graphic novel; it doesn’t have to be professionally produced! You can use the simple $10 microphone that comes with your computer! But you must be able to show us that you can do different voices, as you may take on as many as four or five roles.

    “Send your audition to: before April 5. If that’s not in the cards, don’t worry – we will accept an audition by telephone.

    “You also have to be available for a brief rehearsal the night before, and be available the morning of the performance. If you are chosen to be an actor in ‘Starstruck: Running Scared,’ you will receive your script with lines highlighted (as well as a performance engagement contract) prior to I-CON.”

    Pass along the message! We’d love to hear from him!
