Luna-C

Luna-C Productions is a comedy troupe that writes and performs live vaudeville-style sketch comedy based on science fiction shows and movies. The roots of Luna-C began many years ago when a group of friends got together and formed a sketch comedy group, Doctors In The House. When that group folded in 1996 the remaining members banded together to form Luna-C. Our cast includes performers of diverse backgrounds from educators to professional costumers and puppeteers with many years of live performance experience. Luna-C has appeared at Worldcon and at science fiction conventions around the Mid-Atlantic region.

Midnight Monster Movies with Dr. Bob

Dr. Bob Tesla and his older, body-challenged brother Nikola started Midnight Monster Movies with Dr. Bob. It ran as a monthly live, in-theatre show from 2012 to 2020. At the end of the 9th season, Dr. Bob attempted to reboot the year 2020 and tried to fix it but his experiment backfired and rebooted the show! M3wDB is now a weekly streaming show on Twitch (twitch.tv/DrBobTesla) and is now starting its second season! The same dedication to weird movies, just in a new format!

Nefarious Ferrets

The Nefarious Ferrets are Frank and Donna Parker of North Carolina. Meeting each other in 2006, at ConCarolinas, they realized they had many things in common: science fiction, a love of music, and ferrets. A match made in fandom, they married at ConCarolinas 2007.

At AtomaCon 2017, they “adopted” bass player D.J. McGuire from Virginia—“The second-best bass player in my own damn band (Dimensional Riffs).” He makes a fantastic addition to the group.

Performing as the Nefarious Ferrets since 2009, they have performed at the Geek Gala, ConCarolinas Filk Circles, and the Georgia Filk Convention (GaFilk 2X10s). They were the 2017 Filk Guests at AtomaCon in Charleston, SC and returning performers at RavenCon 2009 and 2019, ConCarolinas 2018, and ConGregate, as well as participating in house filks throughout the Carolinas.
