Girl Genius Radio Theatre podcast cover.

Radio Play and Radio Theatre refer to a collection of tales created by Studio Foglio and set in the Girl Genius universe. They are not considered canon, though they contained (at least as of the time of their creation) possible spoilers for the main narrative; more to the point, they are to be considered stories that people tell about Agatha. When these "plays" may fit relative to the dates that the main narrative has now covered is uncertain.

  • Agatha's Big Date live performance of Girl Genius Radio Theatre at Aussiecon 4, the 68th Worldcon, in Melbourne, Australia, September 4, 2010[7].

The radio plays have appeared in various formats. Originally, they were performed live by minions of Studio Foglio at various conventions. While the plays were not actually broadcast, some were recorded and are now available as podcasts[9]. One early play (Revenge of the Weasel Queen) was not recorded when originally performed. Efforts to reunite the voice actors for a recording session have proved unsuccessful so far, so the tale is being re-told as a short story in the same comic format as the main narrative.[10] As with most scholarship from the Department of Almost Certainly True History, there is little guarantee that the two versions entirely agree.
