COVID-19, Mercury, and Live Performances

Hello, everybody! A very quick update on what’s going on with ARTC these days:

  • COVID-19 – The cast and crew of ARTC is taking every precaution to preserve the health and safety of ourselves and our fans these days. Accordingly, in addition to the cancellation of our March show at the Strand Theatre in Marietta we have also cancelled our appearance at 221B Con (shortly before the convention cancelled itself outright). The status of future shows (April at the Strand, LibertyCon, Dragon Con, etc) will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis based on the situation as it stands at the time.
  • Ordering – We highly encourage everyone to order our downloadable products. Any orders for CDs to be sent through the mail will be handled individually, but in most cases we’re either going to ask you to accept a very delayed delivery date or we will just refund you the purchase price and ask you to buy the digital version instead.
  • Mercury: A Broadcast of Hope – Mercury will continue production, although as we announced previously, we’ll be recording remotely for the foreseeable future. This gives us the opportunity to have additional guests on the show from virtually anywhere in the world, so if you have a story of survival and want to be a character on the show, now’s a good time for you to write that and get in on this historic podcast!
  • Mercury: Year One and Year Two – For those of you who don’t want to subscribe via Patreon for any reason, you can now purchase Year One and Year Two of Mercury: A Broadcast of Hope via this very website for $15 each! Over 30 hours of content in each 365-day package!

We hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. We’re working on additional projects that have been in post-production for a while and exploring ways to keep our production cycle moving while not putting anyone at risk of spreading SARS-COV-2. Thank you all for your continued support! There is Adventure in Sound!
