A Klingon Christmas Carol
The Star Trek bug is probably something you either have or you don't; I still have fond elementary-school-age memories of going to a Trek convention and meeting the courtly, cerebral Leonard Nimoy, still willing to make that funny "live long and prosper" hand gesture probably long after his finger joints had started to ache with age. Local company Commedia Beauregard indulges the Trek infection with this one-off adaptation of Dickens's Scrooge-fest into the Klingon language (if you didn't know Klingon had been adapted into a real, living language, you've obviously escaped the contagion). Look for Klingon prosthetics, lots of guttural consonants, and, with luck, a pervasive sense of serious silliness. A silent auction benefit and other entertainments commence an hour before showtime.
Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Dec. 8. Continues through Dec. 8, 2007
