AURELIA has launched! Be one of our pioneering actors.

A fantasy tale, told by an unlimited crowdsourced cast, with an uncertain ending? That’s exactly what we’ve launched in Aurelia: Edge of Darkness. Now, it’s up to some pioneering actors to give this groundbreaking show a try! Watch the intro video here, then get your link to the private show site by emailing Lisa England at



Meet Kelly Cook

Kelly Cook, a long-time live action role player and open-air actor, will be sharing tips throughout the summer as our neighborhood actor coach. In anticipation of tomorrow’s launch, get to know Kelly in this brief video:


If this is a fantasy show, then do I need a costume?

Many actors have asked this question. Fortunately, the answer is not as daunting as it sounds.

As an actor, you will only be seen from the chest up. All you really need to “decorate” are your shoulders, neck, and possibly your hair.

Of course, if you already have a costume for fantasy/steampunk LARP or cosplay, we hope you’ll show it off! But if you don’t, then look no further than your own closet. Vests, tunics, cloaks, watches, jewelry, hats and scarves are just a few of the many interesting items you may already have.

Check out these examples from the everyday wardrobes of character coach Kelly and showrunner Lisa:

A simple shawl (or piece of cloth) is very versatile.

Try a newsboy cap for that Steampunk look, or find an old scarf.
