* ''[[Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical AVPSY: A Very Potter Senior Year]]'' (2012) -- the third (and final) Harry Potter musical. [=StarKid=] revealed they had been working on the Threequel in early 2011 and had tentatively planned for a performance and online release around the same time as ''[[Film/HarryPotter Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 2]]'', but the busy schedule of DarrenCriss (his roles in ''Series/{{Glee}}'' and ''Theatre/HowToSucceedInBusinessWithoutReallyTrying'') made that impossible. A reading of the script featuring nearly every [=StarKid=] actor was presented at [=LeakyCon=] 2012 and was released on [=YouTube=] on March 15th 2013. Luna Lovegood appeared, played by the real Luna, Creator/EvannaLynch herself.

* ''Theatre/MeAndMyDick'' (2009) -- about [[TheDanza Joey Richter]] and his relationship with his Dick -- which walks, talks and has a mind of its own. Joey and Dick attempt to woo Vanessa, the girl of Joey's dreams, not realizing that they are the object of Sally and her Miss Cooter's affections. Think ''Film/AmericanPie'' [[XMeetsY had it been made by]] Creator/DonBluth.

* ''Theatre/{{Starship}}'' (2011) -- unlike previous [=StarKid=] productions, the live performance took place in Chicago, audience members were charged for their tickets, and the video was released as a DVD as well as on [=YouTube=]. It's ''not'' about Pigfarts -- it's set on a planet of bug aliens and follows a rebellious young bug who finds a crashed human spaceship and becomes fascinated with all the evidence of human culture, only to then meet ''real'' humans when another spaceship arrives. Darren Criss described the show as "''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Film/{{Aliens}}''".
