This weekend, Trekkies will be taking over! From Vulcans to Puppets, there’s something to entertain everyone!
First off, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know that Star Trek: Into Darkness has hit the theatres. As a life long Star Wars fan, I remember the excitement that I felt upon seeing what JJ Abrams did with the franchise reboot. I never would have imagined that it could be possible for me to enjoy a Trek film as much as a Wars film. And if the previews are any indication, I certainly will not be disappointed by the sophomore effort.
A little closer to home, Theatre Charlotte will open their run of the Broadway musical AVENUE Q. In 2012, our theatre company was to have held the regional premiere of the show. We had an amazing cast in place, puppets being custom made, and rehearsals were under way. Sadly, we lost our theatre space and had to cancel the final two productions of our season. But don’t worry! You can’t keep a good troupe down! We’ll be back before too long. In the mean time, hats off to Theatre Charlotte for pulling together what is bound to be a fantastic show. Break legs, you guys!
