Today is our 11th anniversary! While we no longer see each other every month at M Bar or Largo, the friendships made through the Thrilling Adventure Hour will last our lifetimes. Indeed, doing this show regularly was the time of our lives.
We miss each other, and we miss all of you Adventurekateers. We love seeing everyone at our occasional shows, so thanks for supporting us for so long and for continuing to do so.
Here are a bunch of photos from our first years, 2005-2010 (by Jonathan Reilly), at M Bar and from our final show at Largo, April 2015 (by Maarten DeBoer).
Yuri Lowenthal and Michael Sinterniklaas played Sparks and Croach’s kids in a non-canonical final Sparks arc. Here’s Yuri at our final show:
These cute dudes:
Musicians Jonathan Dinerstein and Becky Ward look exactly the same.
Our pals Common Rotation and Dan Bern used to play after our show for an entire evening of mad fun.
Marc Evan Jackson would usually “help” their show.
Jordan “The Brass” Katz was 1/3 of Common Rotation and continues to be part of the TAH family:

The progress of my SS art loll. The first one was done by mouse cause I didn’t have a tablet yet. Later that year during Christmas, I finally got a tablet! Then, few months ago I got a Cintiq, which is what I drew the latest one on. Bless Cintiqs~ My style keeps changing.. And you can tell that I hate coloring, right?
There was like.. a point where there was no drawings of SS whatsoever cause that’s when I stopped caring about Naruto lol.. OTL
I wasn’t gonna put the two traditionally drawn fanarts in here cause I just wanted to include the digital works, but I colored the one in Sept. 2008 on Photoshop so it kinda counts? Lol. Also the one in 2011.. I really like it so.. -flails arms-
If I’ve managed to keep a correct list over all the Christines in Las Vegas, there was 9 in total. The Las Vegas production started with two principals, due to 10 performances a week. Eventually they started doing 8 performances a week, and introduced the usual principal/alternate split. In addition there were several understudies and some vacation covers.
Elizabeth Loyacano (principal 2006-08)
Sierra Boggess (principal 2006-07)
Kristen Hertzenberg (u/s 2006, alt. Aug. 2007 to 2012, away from June
2008-09, + Sept-Nov. 2011)
Kristi Holden (principal 2007-12)
Sarah Elizabeth Combs (u/s 2006-12)
Amanda Huddleston (u/s 2006-07, alt. June 2008-09, u/s 2009-12)
Sarah Galbraith (Aug. 2007 - May 2008)
Bonnie Fraser (u/s June 2008 to Nov. 2008)
Sarah Lawrence (u/s Dec. 2008 to Feb. 2009)
Of these, at least four of them also played Christine in other productions: Elizabeth Loyacano on Broadway, Sierra Boggess on Broadway and the RAH concert, Kristi Holden in the World Tour, and Sarah Lawrence in the US Tour.
ETA: so I forgot about Erin Stewart and Megan Starr Levitt!
CH-53 Pave Low helicopters prepare to take off for their final combat mission on Sept. 27, 2008, in Iraq. The CH-53, the largest and most technologically advanced helicopter in the Air Force with a record dating back to the Vietnam War, was retired from the Air Force inventory on Sept. 30, 2008.
Presented to Jared Padalecki By Sandra Echeverri At EyeCon, Sept 2008.
This set was created, completely custom made, and based it on “Supernatural” This is an original set design and created by Sandra Echeverri and Jim Arnold. The idea of this set came to me one day while talking to a friend of mine and I was not able to let it be just an idea in paper, so I decided to make it a reality and here is the final product. I hope you like and enjoy it specially because is my way to thank you for all your hard work and because thanks to you and “Supernatural” I was able to get through some of the most difficult times in my life.
The light pieces represent the good side and the dark pieces represent the evil side.
The Good side: The Evil side: King – Sam Winchester King - Azazel (YED) Queen – Dean Winchester Queen - Lilith Bishops – John Winchester and Bobby Singer Bishops – Hookman and Scarecrow Knights – The Colt Knights – Hellhounds Rooks – The Impala Rooks – Devil’s gate Pawns – Rock Salt Pawns – Fire Flames
The pieces for this set were carved in maple for the Good side, and walnut for the Evil side; the sizes of the pieces are: Kings – base 2” square by 6.5” tall Queens – base 2” square by 6” tall Bishops – base 2” square by 5.5” tall Knights – base 2” square by 4.5” tall Rooks – base 2” square by 3.5” to 4” tall Pawns – base 1.75” square by 3”tal
The board was design and created by me, the design comes from the tattoos that Sam and Dean have of the pentagram that protects them from demonic possession.
The background painting is done on oil paint; the board is Plexiglas with the squares painted on with frosting paint, and the frame is made of mahogany wood. The size of the chessboard is 24” square, and the squares of the board are 2.5” x 2.5” each.
