In our first ever live show, 'Necrologist News Network' performs Episode 102 - "See All Susie" LIVE from BransonCon 2019. In the spirit of full disclosure, our first experience in recording a live podcast episode came with some learning challenges and curveballs: sound equipment left much to be desired, the camera was bumped and knocked some characters out of frame (and kept them there), and then the camera shut off near the third act mark - all of which we didn't discover until much later and after the fact so the last ten or so minutes are audio only from the originalpodcast recording to round out a full episode. But HEY! - it was still a fun and memorable time and we want to share the masterpiece (or trainwreck) of an experience with you! Enjoy! :).."See All Susie" written & directed by Sean ParkerLIVE performance directed by Helena Lee & Sean ParkerProduced & Edited by Helena LeeProduction Assistance by Kevyn Marshall.Hosted by Sean Parker as Mortimer Moribund & Helena Lee as Morticia Morrigan. CAST:Billy Coatney (Donnie McElroy)Helena Lee (Elizabeth McElroy)Miranda Tucker (Genene Newbody)Kevyn Marshall (Ally McElroy)Sean Parker ([TV segments] Lucky Larry, Swedish Pizza Delivery Guy, Kilbob the Klown) And Persephone Atreides as See All Susie..MUSIC:"Kilbob's Theme" is composed by Dustin Farris.
