Shuto Con would like to announce their headlining event, “The Wasabi Animusical IV: A New Hope”!

Conchair Stefanie Shall has been working with Tom Croon from Wasabi Anime (located in Florida) to bring this truly entertaining and spectacular event to Shuto Con 2011, located in Lansing, MI. Those that live in Florida would remember the Animusical from JACON '05-'07, but those that live in the North will be introduced to something unlike anything they've ever seen before!

This event fits in perfectly with Shuto Con's “Interactive Cosplay” focus. Attendees at Shuto Con will be entertained by their favorite Anime and Video Game characters singing and dancing out numbers set to popular Broadway, movie, and music tracks. Unlike a costume contest where people only display their outfits and possibly preform a little fan service, the Animusical will entertain even the most die hard of fans the entire time!

History of the Wasabi Animusical

The Wasabi Animusical is a stage show for anime conventions that combines the elements of cosplay with Broadway and movie musicals. The show premiered at JACON 2005 and was an instant success among Florida’s anime fans. The show and its unique concept gained even more of a following on the Internet via YouTube where the videos of the each year’s show were posted.

You can learn more about Wasabi Anime and view some of the the wonderful Animusical productions at http://www.greenmustard.com/ and http://www.youtube.com/user/WasabiAnime

Casting Call

We are currently looking for cosplayers to join the Animusical. Those interested must own at least two costumes from Anime or Video Game titles, must have some sort of acting background, and must be available for weekend rehearsals (which will be posted closer to the convention). If you would like to be a part of Shuto Con history, please email pictures and/or video links of you in your cosplay outfits to events@shutocon.com .

Auditions will be in mid-april, official dates/times TBA.

Will this take the place of the Masquerade that many cons do, or be in addition to it? Considering the qualifications to be a part of the musical, and that I find the Masquerades to be one of the major highlights of any cons I attend, I am hoping they will both take place.

Thanks,

If I could add, if there is someone who would like to participate that do not own a cosplay, but are interested in it still, I can make for them an outfit. I would only have to charge the price that it would cost to make it.

Only dedicate...d cosplayers please! Those choose to be in the Animusical will get a free 2-day membership badge.

Well, I have a bit of sad news to announce... After much thought we have decided to postpone the Wasabi Animusical until our 2012 convention. We have had a few problems with getting enough cosplayers interested in doing the show, and because of this we haven't been able to write the script to live up to the grandeur its previous performances have set. HOWEVER, we would like to hear from you regarding what event you would like to see more as a replacement. Would you rather have a Skit Contest (once again dependent on Cosplayers), or would you rather have a longer (4-5 hour) Friday night dance/rave?
