Is Awsum Hat, Yes?

At 4 PM on Saturday, the Girl Genius Radio Players took to the stage before a packed house (I'll guess around 200-300 based on the room capacity) to perform Revenge of the Weasel Queen (which I'd seen performed before) and Agatha's Big Date (which I had not). As the Narrator, I had big expository chunks of lines at the start and a wind-up at the end, but little in the middle of each episode. Fortunately, each of these was a three-part episode.

If I do say so myself, I think I did great. I know I had a wonderful time chewing up the script and delivering the narration in the style informed by Cheyenne Wright's interpretation of the material. The other players really got into it as well, and I had an utterly marvelous time doing this show, and I very much hope to get a chance to do it again.

After the show, I went back to Phil & Kaja's table in the Dealers' Room and told them that I expect that we'll want to do this at Westercon next year. Phil said that would be good and asked if I would have the time to be in the play. I said, "I'm your Guest of Honor Liaison — I'd darn well better have the time!" I then posed for a photo with Kaja and Phil.

I spend so much time on the "business" side of conventions that some people may not even be aware that there are things I really enjoy doing aside from Business Meetings, panels about conrunning, and maybe a game show now and then. I was so pleased that their show fell during one of those blocks of time where I actually had no other calls on me.

I set up the tripod and recorded the performance. I will upload it when I get a chance, but it's unlikely to happen before I get home due to bandwidth issues (including how much time I have available to process stuff!)
