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 Avondale Estates, which featured our 2009 performance of Blues for Johnny Raven by Thomas E. Fuller. Check out all the pictures on our Flickr album.
This was our 25th Anniversary performance, and so we really went all out, as they say.
Y’know, we talk about how surprising it is that we’ve lasted so long. But the truth is that good storytelling is and has always been valued, so it really shouldn’t be that surprising.
This performance featured some of our favorites, some blasts from the past, and was a ton of fun. We got to see our founder William Brown take the stage again to recite The Mountain Whippoorwill by Stephen Vincent Benet…
…as well as one of our favorite Rory Rammer episodes: The Asteroid of Love.
We were also treated to Brad Strickland’s An Arkham Home Companion.
We were also joined by our frequent musical guest Juliana Finch!
And, lest we forget, the main attraction, Blues for Johnny Raven!
Blues for Johnny Raven is in the final stages of post-production now and will be available soon, first by download and later on CD!
