“StarKid Productions is best described as an ensemble of writers, actors, directors, designers, producers, and other goof-offs. Blending live performance with the accessibility of the internet, Starkid has taken the long-revered art of parody and fumblingly marched forward with it into the 21st century.
StarKid has its roots firmly embedded in the University of Michigan’s School of Music, Theater, and Dance. In April of 2009, with a budget of less than $150, an original script and score, and a cast and creative team chock full of Michigan cohorts, A Very Potter Musical premiered. Three months later, having filmed the live performances for family and friends, writers Nick Lang, Matt Lang, and Brian Holden posted the videos to YouTube, and within days the show had gone viral. In just under two years, StarKid’s original works have garnered over 64 million views on YouTube, a devoted international fan-base of over 110,000 subscribers, and national attention from MTV, Entertainment Weekly, blogger Perez Hilton, Access Hollywood, The Hollywood Reporter, BillBoard.com, New York Magazine, The Detroit Free Press, and National Public Radio, blah blah blah. Now based in Chicago, StarKid remains committed in partnership with Al Gore to pioneering the internet as a new outlet for theatre distribution.
After many decades of hard and successful work, all of the members of Starkid eventually died and were forgotten as the hands of time marched forward. We are all grains of sand on an infinite and unending beach.”
