The annual gathering of Muggles who love Harry Potter – otherwise known as LeakyCon – will take place August 9-12th in Chicago. And among the special events and presentations planned for this year’s Potter lovefest is Team StarKid’s new musical parody, A Very Potter 3D: A Very Potter Senior Year. The sequel to A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel was written by Matt Lang, Nick Lang, and Brian Holden and will be performed as a staged reading during the A Very StarKid Event II on August 11th.
20 members of StarKid Productions (including Darren Criss, Joey Richter, Brian Holden, Jaime Lyn Beatty, and Dylan Saunders) will perform at the event, marking the second appearance by the group at LeakyCon. Criss, best known for his work on Glee, is one of the founders of Team StarKid.
“We couldn’t be happier to welcome back Team StarKid to LeakyCon,” said Melissa Anelli, the conference’s organizer. “They have become a substantial and exciting part of the Harry Potter fandom and we could not imagine organizing an event without them.”
“This year Team StarKid celebrated the third anniversary of the release of A Very Potter Musical. At LeakyCon, we’ll celebrate three years of being included in this spectacular fandom by presenting one of the most requested and most rumored about projects amongst our fans,” said Brian Holden, one of the members and founders of Team Starkid.
