Dr. Horrible needs your help!


Want to be on stage in front of all of Capricon?  We’ve got the perfect opportunity!  On Saturday at 7pm, we will have a LIVE performance of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog – it’s THE event of the con!  We need a Fan Boy and Fan Girl to help out with the song “The Perfect Story”, so if you can carry a tune and have a lot of enthusiasm, we want YOU!  Contact the director, Ruth P. at if you’re interested.  (Must be available Friday during the day for some rehearsal, and Saturday for final rehearsal and performance.)

Snow Goons!


So looking out my window and gauging by the fact that the snow is still coming down… I’m thinking that unless we have a freak heat wave in the next week and a half… there will still be snow on the ground when Capricon starts next week. Which also means theoretically the annual(When the weather cooperates) Snow Goon! panel should be able to happen. If you’re going to be at Cap Friday morning, come out and make snow goons! Here are the details of the panel:

Snow Goons!

Time: Friday – 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM
Category: Panel-Event
Track: Other
Location: Lobby (No snow goons in the lobby please… just meet there and go outside to make your goons!)
Panelists: Helen Montgomery, Erik V. Olson
Description: Bring your snowpants and gloves and come outside with us to build Snow Goons! What are Snow Goons, you ask? Snowmen, but seriously twisted, a la Calvin and Hobbes. (Weather permitting)

And just in case you’re curious this information and a whole lot more about Capricon’s program schedule are now available on our website. If you’re around the Midwest today… there’s a good chance that you’re stuck inside, so why not take a few minutes to look at what we’ve got planned. Leave a comment and let us know what you’re most looking forward to at Capricon this year.

Pre-Registration Ending Soon!


Well folks, Capricon 31 is sneaking up on us. Pre-Registration closes tomorrow 1/31. Here is your last chance to register for the $55 rate. After 1/31 your only option for the full weekend will be the at-the door price of $70. We also have various one day rates if you’re only going to be able to make it out for a single day. You can get all the details as well as information on how to register online by visiting the registration page on the Capricon 31 website.

And of course in case you missed the announcement… the full weekend schedule is now available online as well. This schedule shows all of the panels, anime, games and special events that we have planned for the weekend. Check it out and start planning. Of course this schedule is subject to change, because as we all know, nothing is final until 24 hours after the event is over.

See you all soon.
