We are so excited to announce that Team StarKid will perform a special one-time-only reading of “Starship: Requiem,” the romantic sci-fi comedy sequel to their 2011 space odyssey “Starship.” The story follows the adventures of Mega-Girl the robot and her half-witted Starship Ranger husband.
The newlyweds are sucked into a black hole of trouble when they go to visit Mega-Girl’s human-hating family, including her overbearing mother-unit, her jealous sister-unit and the return of her hunky ex-boyfriend-unit.
As an added bonus for LeakyCon attendees, Team StarKid will celebrate their five-year anniversary at a retrospective panel where they will answer questions, share stories and read some of the deleted scenes from their “Very Potter Musical” series. Read more…

We’re going to LeakyCon again this year! A reading of Starship: Requiem as well as some deleted bits from the AVPM series!

nikidjan asked: While on the subject of talking to Starkid about things that are bothersome, I'm going to be honest, their attitude towards plus women is a little iffy. I get typecasting, but all the leading ladies are cute and thin and the few plus ladies they have are comic-relief side-ladies. They even made Ursula a thinner woman in a fatsuit. And even the suit was too thin for my taste, like Ursula is so sensual with her giant octopus body, leave her big. Idk, that's just another thing I noticed.

That’s something that had never actually occurred to me, but you make a good point. Of course, the acting industry in general has issues that way as well.

nikidjan asked: Hi! I noticed you said Aladdin and Jafar are Desi, and I wanted to point out that if we're talking about the Disney version, the narrator mentioned that Agrabah is near the Jordan, and if we're talking the original story it's sourced to the general Middle East but Aladdin is explicitly described as being Chinese and it takes place in China. I'm not super knowledgeable on Desi people so correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding was that it's more India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, etc.

I think you’re right. Thanks for pointing out the mistake!

Anonymous asked: Robert has also said that it was after he came back to Australia that he was asked to audition, so they gave him some or all of the script and he sent them videos of himself singing Santa Fe from Newsies, and of him performing parts of the script

Anonymous asked: Brian Holden said in one of the live streams that he invited Robert to audition because he won like 2 or 3 categories in the AVPSY contest, and Brian figured that because he'd seen how talented he was in more than just one thing, he'd see if Rob was interested in auditioning. Evidently he was, and he impressed them enough to be given a part.

Anonymous asked: Hey, I wanted to know your opinion on Robert Manion? I like him, and think he's amazing, but I think there's something going on where they asked him to come join Twisted and we've never heard anything about the other contest winners since.

I don’t really know enough about Robert Manion to have an opinion. I don’t know why he was asked to join and not the other contest winners, but my guess would be that it had to do with living near enough to the other StarKids and wanting to act, which might not have been true of the other contest winners. However, I have no idea whether or not this is true. Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful!

I’m friends with one of the other winners. She told me that he stayed longer at some point and auditioned for them. They obviously liked him and thought he would be a good addition. He got my friend a ticket and she flew out to watch it.

Cool, thanks for letting me know! other of my followers have pointed out that Robert Manion is from Australia, so my proximity guess was wrong.

Anonymous asked: Just wondering what did you put in your letter to starkid?

I wrote them two letters. The first can be found here, and was written last spring. The second one was a follow-up letter after they mentioned my first one in an interview. There were places that I felt they’d missed the point, so I wrote another letter, which can be found here. 

It’s possible that the links aren’t working— my internet is going screwy right now— so let me know if they don’t lead anywhere and I’ll try to fix it. If you don’t want to read the whole letters, the long and short of it is that I wrote to tell them that I wished they had more female characters and that they developed them as characters better so they’d be more three dimensional.

Hey followers,

This blog hasn’t been active for a while, but I promised you updates on anything related to my letter to Team StarKid. I just wanted to let you all know that I just received a very nice email from Nick Lang. He said that in the writing process of Twisted, they thought a lot about my letter while writing the Princess character. He also said that they will continue to keep what I’ve said in mind while representing all characters as they go on in writing their musicals.

I just wanted to send out a massive thank you to anyone who helped me with the writing of that letter and supported me throughout the process. I’m thrilled to have such a positive response, and in a lot of ways it was you who made that happen. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Anonymous asked: how is lauren lopez white washed?

Lauren Lopez is Latina (I think?), but a lot of people talk about her as being white. To be clear, she’s whitewashed by the fandom, not by Team StarKid themselves, and I’m pretty sure  it’s because a lot of people just don’t know. I didn’t know Darren was Filipino until fairly recently.

Anonymous asked: Hey! I'm new to tumblr so I don't have any followers, but you do, so I thought I would ask you to help spread the word. Tomorrow is the last day for starkid voting in portrait magazine, they are so close to winning! I think if every starkid could vote maybe 5-10 times tomorrow we would win in a landslide! It would be so awesome to see them on a magazine cover, they totally deserve it :) I am going to send this to multiple starkid blogs, so post as you wish. I only hope we can acheive victory!

Hey followers. I don’t know where the voting is for this, as this is the first I’ve heard of it, but if you know where it is and want to vote that’d be cool.
