Hello, Earth!

Last summer, three friends watched Atomic Arts' performance of "Amok Time". Driving home from Portland--it was a whirlwind trip, prompted by the marriage of two great loves, Star Trek and outdoor theater--we said, "We could do that."

We could, and we are. And here is the result.

Hello Earth, a brand new nonprofit theater company, is bringing "The Naked Time" to Seattle's Dr. Blanche Lavizzo Park on July 31st, August 1st, 7th, and 8th. Our commitment is to free, outdoor theater which thinks Shakespeare is great but thinks other stuff is cool, too.

Over the next few weeks, as we get our show together, Joy (director, producer) and Kris (producer, actor) will be introducing ourselves and offering behind-the-scenes updates on the process of bringing a beloved tv show to the stage. You can follow this blog and/or join us on twitter, @hello_earth.

Star Trek is property of CBS/Paramount Television. No money is being made.
