Centauri Express, V02 Issue03 – Dash Cardigan 03

Sorry for the late podcast tonight, folks, but I’m on the road! Three weeks in an RV seeing the American southwest. Austin, Carlsbad Caverns, Roswell, Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, and Pike’s Peak! On the way home now, but had to get the podcast up…and that involved finding some decent wi-fi, which has been somewhat challenging on this trip.

On this issue of the Express, we bring you episode three of Dash Cardigan – Enter the Dark by Thomas E. Fuller.

Following that, we’ll have a short interview with Bill Holbrook regarding our recent adaptation and performance of his storyline from Kevin and Kell, The Great Bird Conspiracy at Dragon Con.

carlsbad-caverns01balloon-fill-albuquerque-balloon-fiesta01zion-national-park01And lastly, we’ll wrap things up with a special segment here on the Express. Here on the road there are lots of sounds and we’re bringing you just a few of them. A bit of insect life from an RV park in Austin, TX, some footsteps and cave swallows at Carlsbad Caverns, the filling of a hot air balloon (and surrounding crowd) at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, and a couple of hikers coming out of The Narrows at Zion National Park, dragging a wooden walking stick on a dirt-strewn concrete walkway.

If you enjoy these in-the-field segments, let us know and we’ll do more!

Centauri Express – Vol2, Issue 1 – Dash Cardigan 01

Size: 41.7M Duration: 30:26

Centauri-Express-logo-transparentWelcome to the first issue of the second volume of the Centauri Express Audio Magazine! As we’ve mentioned before, the first volume of the Express was way back in the 1980s and was distributed on cassette, if you can believe such a thing. Today, we’ve moved into…a more modern era.

Dash-Cardigan-webAnd, as promised, we are bringing you the expanded edition of Thomas E. Fuller’s epic space opera, Dash Cardigan. We originally presented it as the hour-long stage version on ARTC’s Podcast, but this is the expanded 13-episode original version. Chock full of character development, tense plots, and astounding…wait, what? The whole series is a bunch of cheesy jokes and classic movie references? Sounds great!!

Louis+Puster+IIIAlso in this issue of the Express, William L. Brown interviews author Louis Puster, III about his Saga of Ukumog series of books and we’ll also hear a segment from a panel discussion at Sci Fi Summer 2016 that features William Brown, Anthony Fuller, and William Alan Ritch. We’ll bring you more of that panel discussion in future issues of the Express, so stay tuned for that!

As always, thanks for listening and let us know what else you’d like to hear in the audio magazine!

The Passion of Frankenstein part 5 of 5

Size: 10.7M Duration: 18:52

We apologize for the lateness of the podcast this month. Dragon Con ate our brain.

Well, this is it. The final chapter in this 5-part saga of The Passion of Frankenstein. It’s been quite a summer with an unprecedented three performances of this gothic masterpiece.

The Dragon Con stage.

We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to hear this piece from the different casts. We looked for some of the older performances, but they appear to have been misplaced. If we find them, maybe we’ll run them later.

“No, please! No more Frankenstein!”

In the previous installments of this piece, the music was done by Brad Weage. In this final installment we were pleased to have live music from The Ghosts Project.

The Passion of Frankenstein part 4 of 5

Size: 10.5M Duration: 17:53

We’re back with another podcast, and this time we’re coming back to the studio production of The Passion of Frankenstein. Remember, you can get this production in all its glory, with CD quality sound instead of the heavy compression we put on the podcast tracks, right here!

Also, just like the last time we used the studio production, we have no photos from that show, so we’re bringing you more from the LibertyCon show.

The Passion of Frankenstein part 3 of 5

Size: 9M Duration: 15:39

Continuing our presentation of Thomas E. Fuller’s powerhouse, The Passion of Frankenstein, this month we bring you a performance from LibertyCon 2015.

As we’ve mentioned several times, the script is like an irresistable force, bearing down on the audience and hitting them with a heady blend of emotion, horror, and intense sound effects. The piece is vocally challenging for our actors. When we decided to bring the performance to World Horror Convention, we knew we couldn’t just perform it once but we also knew that the actors’ voices might never be the same if they had to perform it as many times in a row as we were planning.

So for LibertyCon 2015 we switched up the cast. We hope you enjoy this segment that features several performers brand new to ARTC!

31 Years of ARTC: The Last Dragon to Avondale 2010

Continuing our look back at ARTC’s 31 years (thusfar!) with photos from our live performances. You can get a look at our whole history of combining adventures in sound with the thrill of live performance in our Chronology!

In this installment we bring you our appearance at the Academy Theatre in October 2010 where we performed The Last Dragon to Avondale along with The House Across the Way, featuring music by Brad Weage and Paul Mercer, and Rory Rammer, Space Marshal: The Colour of the Shadow of the Outsider Over the Mountains of Madness Out of Space. This performance was a benefit for Georgia Aquarium (it was one of our first benefit performances, in fact!) and also included special musical guest Rooke! Check out all the pictures on our Flickr album.

In 2010 we debuted our Partners in Imagination program, which strives to harness the power of multiple non-profit groups into something stronger by raising awareness amongst our various audiences and maybe even a little money as well.

Megan Tindale and Brian Troxell

Psst…there’s not a lot of money in this…at least not yet.

We had originally wanted to do this benefit for Georgia Aquarium with Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, but it became apparent very quickly that the script wouldn’t be ready in time, so we switched gears to The Last Dragon to Avondale. We felt that its focus on an “endangered species” made it a great fit.

Andrew Chiang and Sonya Arundar

“You keep telling yourself that, ok?”

Plus, we’d been performing at the Academy Theatre in Avondale Estates for a while at this point and to NOT perform this piece there would have been a crime against … well, a crime against something. Dragons, maybe.

The audience for

We got a good turnout, too!

We also had the privilege of working with some amazing musicians on this piece. There was Brad Weage.

And our special musical guest, Rooke! Rooke has been around since the late 1980s and play a kind of (in their words) acid folk. We couldn’t quite get the whole band for this show, but we were thrilled to get Steven Sams, David Cater, and Keena Graham!

Rooke actually released an album of the recordings from this performance, so go get some great music!
