Genre: Musical Comedy
Notes: Glee cast member Darren Criss played the lead in Team StarKid's Harry Potter parodies.
Team StarKid began as a student theatre troupe at University of Michigan. They no longer have to worry about classes anymore, simply entertaining the legions of fans that pack their shows and rack up millions of views on the Team StarKid YouTube channel. Now based in one of the country's theatre hubs, Chicago, Illinois, Team StarKid routinely puts on innovative and hilarious parody shows that are a hit with audiences nationwide.
The troupe first gained national notice with their original production: A Very Potter Musical. Based on the wildly successful series of books, video of the musical became a viral video smash in 2009, gaining Team StarKid overnight recognition. The video of A Very Potter Musical was named one of "The 10 Best Viral Videos of 2009" by EW.com.
Their musical follow-up, a risque comedy named Me and My Dick arrived later in 2009. The soundtrack to the musical became the first college student-produced cast recording to make to the Billboard Top 100, a major accomplishment for the young troupe.
Returning to the franchise that started it all, Team StarKid's next production was A Very Potter Sequel. Like previous Team StarKid productions, this one was uploaded to YouTube, eventually receiving a Mashable nomination for "Best Web Video" of 2010. Their success online lead to the release of A Very StarKid Album, a compilation of songs from A Very Potter Sequel and previous productions along with other material from the troupe. It hit #14 on iTunes Pop charts.
Team StarKid turned their sights elsewhere in 2010, releasing Starship, a sci-fi themed musical that parodies Starship Troopers among other well known sci-fi franchises.
Team StarKid's theatrical productions are only one way to see the troupe. They tour and perform songs from all their musicals, entertaining crowds around the country with the best from their musical catalog. This unique theatrical experience shouldn't be missed.
