Radio drama lives on through live performance in LA

We talked earlier this week about Marvel Comics putting out an audio version of their comic Daredevil #1, but some groups are putting on far more extensive live audio productions right here in Los Angeles. The most well-known of these groups is probably the Thrilling Adventure Hour, which runs shows at the Largo Theater, but there's more than that around town.

This weekend, the group Captured Aural Phantasy Theater is putting on a show called Comic Book Summer Camp at the NerdMelt stage at Meltdown Comics. The show features live performances of old school comic book stories, live music, comedy, art and more.

This particular show is going to be summer-themed; they say it will include "tales of summer vacation, summer fun and summer love." And Meatballs references. The comic they mention on their site that I'm most excited for: Superboy pulling double duty and dating both Lana Lang and Lois Lane at summer camp. (Superheroes get all the girls.)

You can see Captured Aural Phantasy's Comic Book Summer Camp this Saturday at 8 p.m. at the NerdMelt theater at Meltdown Comics, along with pre-show music from surf band the Noble Gasses.
