So yeah I am going to take a minute to brag a little bit here about living in Portland Oregon. To a Star Trek fan August is the time to be here, no not for the beautiful weather but for “Trek in the Park”! Yeah that’s when you can can go every Saturday & Sunday to Cathedral Park in North Portland to witness a live Star Trek episode re-enacted before your very eyes in full costume! For FREE!
This has become somewhat of a Portland tradition over the years and it’s grown more popular every year. This year it moves to an even bigger location with an ampitheater. Some feel this could make the show less intimate than previous years. Either way it’s going to be a lot of fun.
“Returning this year is the long-standing and talented crew of actors that fans have grown to love, including Adam Rosko as James T. Kirk (and director of the show) and Jesse Graff as Mr. Spock. But this year, they will be joined by a cadre of Portland’s most gifted artists, writers and performers including Kaebel Hashitani of Sequential Arts (sequentialartgallery.com) and the pirates of PDXYar (pdxyar.org) portraying some rabble-rousing Andorians and Tellurites. In the roles of Mr. Spock’s parents, Atomic Arts is quite pleased to welcome the husband and wife team of Paul Guinan and Anina Bennet (bigredhair.com), adept multimedia artists best known for their work on the handsomely-designed Boilerplate and Frank Reade: Adventures in the Age of Invention.” Hey this years episode “Journey to Babel” is a true classic and if you live here in PDX you best be in attendance.
