What is Captured Aural Phantasy Theater?

CAPTURED AURAL PHANTASY THEATER combines the art and drama of a vintage radio program with the live entertainment of a Vaudeville show. Conjuring the Golden and Silver Ages of comics, tales teeming with romance, horror, and science-fiction are performed in the style of a live radio drama. The readings are accompanied by musical and visual interludes in a multi-media cabaret style performance. Marvel to actors as they bring retro stories to life while you watch projections of original art, listen to live sound effects, swoon to sultry singing, take home fabulous door prizes, and thrill to many more live-action surprises! The talent never ends in a full evening of entertainment with Captured Aural Phantasy Theater!

Returning to San Diego Comic-con International 2016!

Captured Aural Phantasy Theater is returning to Comic-con International in San Diego! We will be hosting a spectactular panel on Saturday, July 23, in Room 26AB from 4:30-5:30pm.

The panel, "Weird Love: Vintage Romance Comics Come Alive!" delves into the mid-century romance genre and examines what's changed and what's the same in the dating scene between then and now. We are joined by Craig Yoe, editor of IDW's "Weird Love" comics as well as two top women in the comics industry, Adriana Yugovich of the LA Zine Fest and Kristen Simon, former editor of Image comics. We will be discussing the changing role of women in comics using the vintage stories as a springboard. Of course, Captued Aural Phantasy Theater will be performing a few sparkling examples of the genre, including 1951's "I Joined a Teen-Aged Sex Club." Crazy!

Also, the night before, Captured Aural Phantasy Theater will be the featured performers at the San Diego Natural History Museum, also known as the NAT, as part of its Park After Dark event during Comic-con weekend. We hit the stage at 5pm on Friday night, July 22 at the NAT! Check out http://www.sdnhm.org/ for more details.

Here's a little video to get you ready for the CON!

Giving Old Comics a Modern Voice!

Captured Aural Phantasy Theater is what would happen if Garrison Keilor, John Waters and Stan Lee all hooked up after a night of hard partying.

We perform all over Los Angeles and regularly appear at San Diego Comic-con and other events. Our next show is coming soon! Check our FAN PAGE for the latest news.

We are the ONLY group authorized to perform the catalogues of the legendary EC Comics and Famous Monsters LIVE in the world!

We combine the art, drama and comedy of a vintage radio program with the live entertainment of a variety show. Shows are built around performances of vintage pop culture gems, usually comic book stories, along with live sound fx, music and projected art. In between the featured stories are short acts, sultry singing, prizes, special guests and live music.

No joke is too low or innuendo left un-emphasized.

Captured Aural Phantasy Theater is the original pop culture variety show that combines live performance, vaudeville, an old radio show, music and stunning visuals. We bring bits of pop culture, from TV shows to comic books, to life in unique performances that put entertainment first.
