Personal Log: Kris "Pepper" Hambrick (Kirk/Producer)

Image
Kris 'Pepper' Hambrick is now the age Jim Kirk was when the five year mission ended, and she's delighted that she's been able to serve as captain this long. She swears she did not cast herself as Kirk, but she's pretty darned glad about it anyway. The only thing she has in common with William Shatner is that Spock gets all the attention, but who can blame anyone for that? She thanks everyone who's let her play in this sandbox.  What cool things do you do in your life apart from Outdoor Trek? I also like really old movies and going to the zoo and thinking every animal is the cutest. I live with a good cat, an evil cat, and the sweetest dog in the universe. What history do you have with theatrical productions? Anyway, here in Seattle I've played a surfer chick with MPD, Puck, the ghost of Christmas Future, and a few teenage boys. It's a niche, but at least there is one for people like me! Until I age out of it. Fast forward to 2005, and Shatn

Personal Log: Julia Buck (T'Pring)

Image
Julia grew up in New Jersey and came to Seattle by way of Los Angeles five years ago. She played McCoy in Outdoor Trek's 2011 production  This Side of Paradise  after seeing the group rehearse while she was in a production of  Much Ado About Nothing . Julia can most frequently be found onstage at Valley Center Stage in North Bend; she continues her theatrical training with Aaron Levin. When not doing theater, she works at Expedia in their email marketing department. What do you think of Outdoor Trek so far, and what are you looking forward to about the upcoming production? I love Outdoor Trek-- it's been one of my favorite summer traditions in Seattle to be a part of, and I love the thought and care that go into re-imagining instead of just re-creating. I'm most looking forward to sharing a nuanced version of T'Pring. While her actions are not sympathetic, especially to an audience that knows and loves Spock, I see someone who has been placed in a difficult sit

Personal Log: Patrick Hogan (McCoy)

Patrick is an easygoing chap who enjoys French fries, hiking and world travel, in that order – sometimes even in combination! What do you think of Outdoor Trek so far, and what are you looking forward to about the upcoming production? Patrick’s life has not been the same since Outdoor Trek beamed into it!  He watched all of the Star Trek original series episodes including Amok Time over and over as a kid in the late sixties and early seventies.  To get to play Doctor McCoy and say some of his famous lines leaves Patrick over the moon (and Pluto.) What cool things do you do in your life apart from Outdoor Trek? Patrick says that the coolest thing he does is Playback Theater, an improvisational performance art in which audience members tell their stories and see them enacted on the spot, such that actors and audience and “teller” become one.  Outside of the acting world, Patrick has visited a bucketful of amazing locations including the Taj Majal, Timbuktu, the Great W
