On a whim or by chance, discovering Oregon is my passion!
Always looking for the best hikes, the most delicious pizza, my favorite beer, the slowest food and the people that make it happen.
I love finding new experiences and sharing them to entice others to come and see why I love it HERE!
Woodlawn Park: the final frontier. These are the productions of Atomic Arts. Its three-year mission: to showcase classic, contemporary and original productions; to act out live versions of classic Star Trek episodes; and to boldly go where no theater troupe has gone before.
Yes, since 2009, Trek in the Park has transported Captain Kirk and the gang to this outdoor amphitheater in Northeast Portland, where thousands of fans have watched their renditions of episodes of the classic television show. Running every Saturday and Sunday at 5 p.m. from July 9-31, this year's presentation is “Mirror, Mirror,” the episode that introduced the world to the “Evil Spock” concept, which turns a good character bad with the simple addition of a goatee.
The production is complimentary, suitable for all ages, and attendees are encouraged to bring picnics, blankets and chairs to maximize their living room-in-the-park experience. We recommend arriving early and watching the actual episode in advance — it's fun to see how true the troupe stays to the televised original. Also, while furry, four-legged friends are allowed (it's a park, after all), please leave your tribbles at home. On the deck of the Enterprise, they're just too much trouble.More info > >
