Moebius Theatre
This year, with civilization crumbling around us, skies the color of blood and the dead rising from their graves and causing traffic jams, Moebius will present sparkling entertainment about Armageddon that is sure to have you tapping your toes as you slide down into the Pit

Last year at Capricon they debuted a live radio broadcast version of H.G. Wells� The Island of Doctor Moreau.  Check out rehearsal pictures of The Island of Doctor Moreau at  Moebius Theatre's web site

Sing Along
Join in as we sing around the glowing embers of a dying civilization.  Back by popular demand, Capricon members can join in a traditional folk sing-along. Lead by Alvin McGovern, of the Old Town School of Folk Music.  All you need to bring is your voice and your enthusiasm.


Return of the Critter Crunch
Little robots beating up on each other. Build your own! Look for the rules on the Critter Crunch page.

End of the world making you feel like you've got nothing left to give?  Roll up your sleeve and we'll find away for you to contribute!  LifeSource will be at CapriconXX From 10am-4pm.  Please give a little of your time and a little of your blood.  When Armageddon comes there will be even more of a demand for blood than there is now.
