The cast of A Very Potter Musical.

StarKid Productions, also known as Team Starkid, is an American based theatre production company, currently based in Chicago, IL. They have produced several musicals, including A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel, both of which parody the Harry Potter series. A third installment was performed at LeakyCon 2012 on August 11, 2012 titled A Very Potter 3D: A Very Potter Senior Year. Non- Harry Potter productions of theirs include: Me and My Dick, Starship, and Holy Musical Batman.[1]

A Very Potter Musical

A Very Potter Musical was performed at the University of Michigan from 9-11 April, 2009. It was subsequently posted to the video upload site YouTube in late June, where it obtained millions of hits, being considered on the of 10 Best Viral Videos of 2009 by Entertainment Weekly. Unfortunately, after its initial release on YouTube it had to be taken down due to copyright complaints. But luckily after much discussion it was re-uploaded.Although the first part of the musical may have over 9 million views, these views tend to go down as the musical progresses. The final part of the musical (Act 2 part 9) has only received 1.7 million views. A Very Potter Musical was written by Matt Lang, Nick Lang, and Brian Holden, and features music and lyrics by A.J Holmes and Darren Criss.

A Very Potter Sequel

A Very Potter Sequel was performed at the University of Michigan from 14-16 May, 2010. A video of it was shown at the Harry Potter convention Infinitus, and was later uploaded to YouTube on 22 July. Within the first day of its upload, it achieved 160,000 views. The first part of this musical currently has over 2.5 million views, but like its predecessor, the views tend to go down as the musical progresses, the final part (Act 2 part 14) only having just over 1 million views. A Very Potter Sequel was written by Matt Lang, Nick Lang, and Brian Holden, and also features music and lyrics by Darren Criss. Though it is titled Very Potter Sequel it can be considered a prequel as it takes place in the year before the events of AVPM.

A Very Potter Senior Year

A Very Potter Senior Year, the third and final installment in Starkid's Harry Potter Musical Parody Series, premired at LeakyCon 2012 in Chicago.  It was uncertain whether or not the show would happen due to Darren Criss's time constraints with the show Glee, but they were able to gather almost all of the previous Starkid actors for one performance.  Rather than a full show, it was a staged reading; the actors still had their books.  In December of 2012, Starkid released the free script and the soundtrack to the show on their online store..  An announcement video says that the full read-through will be posted to YouTube in 2013.
