31 Years of ARTC: Dragon Con 2010 part 1

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 Dragon Con 2010 (Friday night edition) where we presented The Proper Thing To Do by William Alan Ritch and The House Across the Way by Kelley S. Ceccato. Check out all the pictures on our Flickr album.

Dragon Con. Its name is legendary in the southeast region, and ARTC has been at every single one. It’s a ton of work, but also a ton of fun. We get our biggest audiences at this convention…which isn’t surprising, since it’s the biggest convention we do. We often roll out brand new plays at Dragon Con.

Sometimes we fly them in, too.

We also love to challenge ourselves. As if performing in a hotel ballroom with high ceilings and minimal setup time isn’t challenging enough, we really like to bring our A-game to these fans, and sometimes that means bringing in guest musicians.

Alton Leonard on keyboards and Paul Mercer on violin.
We bring in the regular musicians, too, because they’re awesome.

In 2010 we brought Kelley S. Ceccato’s The House Across the Way, which has a violin as an integral part of the plot. So we called up Paul Mercer and asked if he was available.

Paul Mercer
Spoiler Alert: He was.

Here’s a few more pictures to round it out, but be sure to see the whole album on Flickr!

The Foley team! Or Team Foley. Or whatever they want to call themselves.
Megan Tindale
Don’t let the glowing red eyes fool you. She’s very nice.
Mary Ward
She’s with ARTC…but what does she do with ARTC?
Mary Ward
Well. I guess that answers that question.
