Trek in the Gallery!

Once again, thanks to everyone that came out for a spectacular run over the Summer! We have one more event coming up THIS THURSDAY (9/5) at Sequential Art Gallery!

As part of Portland’s monthly First Thursday event and running though all of September at the gallery, we present FIVE YEAR MISSION, a retrospective showcase of many of the intricate and handmade set pieces, costumes, props and artwork created over the course of our five year journey bringing theatre from the final frontier to Portland parks.

This event is totally FREE and for Thursday only, many of the Trek in the Park cast will be on hand as life-models for the many costume pieces and makeup effects.

We hope to see you there!


Trek announcements!

We’re halfway through our run of THE TROUBLE WITH TRIBBLES so we thought we’d take a second to say thank you to all of you who have come out and supported our final mission! We’re having a great time and we’re so looking forward to the next 4 performances.

If you cant get enough Star Trek before our final weekend, might we suggest a night of movies and comedy.

This time, they’re doing TREKlevision with a screening of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier on 8/23 with your favorite Trek in the Park actors! Text in your best jokes during the movie and have them appear on screen!

One last thing! After doing Trek in the Park for 5 summers we’ve amassed quite a collection of sets, props and costumes from each of our episodes, and we’ve always wanted to put them all on display. The Sequential Art Gallery (run by Trek actors Kaebel Hashitani and Merrick Monroe) have opened up their space for their September exhibition! We cordially invite all of you to their Trek in the Park retrospective show during the First Thursday festivities on 9/5! Come see, in detail, how Star Trek theatre was built from scratch!




The Voyage Concludes…

Trek in the Park’s Five-Year-Mission CONCLUDES! Over the last 4 summers, Atomic Arts has energized Portland to strange new worlds where no audience has gone before and it has all led to this–THE TROUBLE WITH TRIBBLES!

As Kirk and his crew attempt to settle a political dispute on a far off space station, they quickly realize their problems don’t stop there as they have to deal with Federation brass, tempestuous Klingons, and tiny, furry creatures who are adorable, hungry and…multiplying.

Portland actors accompanied with live music and effects bring this classic piece of pop culture to life at historic Cathedral Park under the St. Johns Bridge!


Saturdays and Sundays at 5:00pm

Hello Trek friends!

First, we’d like to give huge thanks to everyone that donated their time and energy to the Tribble Parties at the Jack London Bar! We couldn’t have the tribbles we need to pull off our final season without your help, so from the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

THIS SATURDAY, we have two very special events! The first is a panel at the Stumptown Comics Fest! Join Adam and Amy Rosko, the creators of Trek in the Park for a reflective and insightful discussion about Trek in the Park and its five-year mission, moderated by the Portland Mercury’s Denis Theriault! The panel will take place at 11-11:45am in room B114

Then in the evening, a HUGE, one-night only exclusive event! Holocene’s Fin De Cinema will be screening the classic Star Trek episode, “Spectre of the Gun”! But this isn’t your average screening, this one will feature a LIVE score composed and performed by FEDERALE (in which two of our Beam-Up Boys are members) and live voice acting by the Trek in the Park actors! This can’t miss event will be at 7:30pm and tickets are available here for $8 or at the door for $10!

Hope you can spend your Saturday in the Final Frontier with us!

The Doom That Came to Middle Creek

Our buddy Geahk (one of our wonderful and talented prop masters of Trek in the Park and creator of the stunt Andorian antenna in Journey to Babel) has just launched his own Kickstarter campaign!

It’s an H.P. Lovecraft influenced marionette play that he has written and he needs your help for it to come to life!

Please check out the campaign and video here.

Making Trouble

Work has officially begun on the 5th and final Trek in the Park which happens to be one of the most iconic of all: THE TROUBLE WITH TRIBBLES!

If you’re familiar with the episode you’ll have an idea of just how many little furry Tribbles are going to populate the stage at Cathedral Park this August. We’re going to need so many, we need your help! Whether you want to make 1 or 10 or 100 Tribbles, any are appreciated!

Click the full size image below and use our pattern and follow the easy instructions to make official Trek in the Park Tribbles!A PDF of the pattern as well.

Please understand, the Tribbles cannot be returned, however there’s a chance for Tribble souvenirs when the show closes. And feel free to play with the sizes, but please don’t stray too far from the size we’ve provided.


AUGUST 3-4, 10-11, 17-18, 24-25. That’s every Saturday and Sunday this August at Cathedral Park in St. Johns!

Thanks for all your help and support! Live Long and Prosper!

Happy New Year!!!

Hope your holidays were great! We just started the major planning for TREK IN THE PARK: THE TROUBLE WITH TRIBBLES, the conclusion of our five-year Trek mission! We can’t wait for warm weather and enjoy a day in the park with Star Trek!

The Portland Mercury was kind enough to include us in their year-end arts wrap-up! Give it a read and check out the art for the article created by our very own Vulcan aide, Dylan Meconis!!!

See you later in 2013!!!
