Introducing the next brand new Team StarKid show… Holy Musical B@man!
From the creators of A Very Potter Musical comes a brand new parody… Holy Musical B@man! After witnessing the murder of his parents, a young billionaire makes a solemn vow to dress up like a bat and wage a one man war on crime! But when this solitary savior realizes that “one” is the loneliest number to wage a war with, he’ll set off on a musical adventure to rescue the city from the greatest super-villain of all time and find a super friend. So join us in celebrating/poking-fun-at everyone’s second favorite superhero (right after Spider-man)!
Holy Musical B@man! will be performed 4 times in Chicago at the Hoover-Leppen Theatre on March 22-24 for free. Tickets can be won through lottery at this link. The YouTube version of the show will be released in April. Cast list:
Seems like the StarKids are gearing up to announce something big on Twitter today! Any ideas on what it could be?
Julia Albain, Denise Donovan, Lauren Lopez, and Jaime Lyn Beatty have started a new project: glow*. It’s designed to make girls feel inspired, and to stop bullying and start making changes. According to their website:
We’ll be sharing with you things that we love; videos, songs, and stories that inspire, and hope that you will share your own loves back. We’ll be launching online campaigns and partnering with other organizations that you can get involved in to spread the glow*. We’ll be hosting live events in where we can all meet up and interact, bond, grow together, and most importantly: share the glow*.
Follow glow* on Twitter here, and like them on Facebook here! You can visit their website at http://www.knowyourglow.com. I’ll be keeping you posted on any other glow* events and news involving Lauren, Jaime, Denise, and Julia!
