VALLEY FORGE, PENNSYLVANIA -- March 1, 2009: Concept Galaxy is organizing an interactive production for Zenkaikon 2009, and will be auditioning cosplay talent from around the area to participate. Auditions will take place on August 15, 2009, at the Radisson Valley Forge Hotel, the same location as the convention, Zenkaikon. Those who plan to audition should come prepared with a minute-long "in-character" monologue as the character they wish to play.

Zenkaikon was formed by the merger of the anime and sci-fi convention Zentrancon and the anime convention Kosaikon, both in the Philadelphia area. In 2006, they put on their first event, which was a tremendous success. Zenkaikon will return for its fourth installment on November 7 and 8, 2009, moving into the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge. The convention will feature two days of programming with dealers, artists, panels, performances, gaming, and more. The Zenkaikon staff wishes to thank the many attendees who made the 2008 event such a huge success. They hope to see this trend continue in 2009, and are actively anticipating expansion with larger performance and panel areas, dealer space, and video game rooms.
