Star Trek Live Beaming To Ontario Science Centre
Star Trek Live will beam into Canada this summer, arriving at the Ontario Science Centre on June 2 and running until September 3. As StarTrek.com readers know, Star Trek Live, produced by Mad Science, provides an entertaining, interactive and educational 30-minute journey through the Star Trek universe. Newbie Starfleet Academy cadets – and audiences – learn about space travel, living and working in space, and the latest developments in communications and technology. The show blends inventive special effects, audience participation and an exploration of real space-age technology.
“Today, thanks in part to the popularity of the Star Trek franchise, public interest in outer space and space exploration is exceptionally high,” says Lesley Lewis, CEO of the Ontario Science Centre. “This summer, the Science Centre will actively engage and educate ‘armchair astronauts’ of all ages with Star Trek Live.”
“Star Trek Live could not have found a better location for the popular summer holiday period,” says Leonard Lipes, Mad Science Productions’ managing director and Star Trek Live producer. “Based on the storyline and the fiction-to-reality show concept, both NASA and the Ontario Science Centre were clearly an obvious choice of partners for this co-branding opportunity allowing visitors to follow in the footsteps of Star Trek’s iconic characters, to boldly go where no one has gone before.”
Star Trek Live will be free to Ontario Science Centre patrons who pay general admission. The Science Centre will offer four daily performances of Star Trek Live, with seating available on a first-come, first-served basis. Click HERE to visit the Ontario Science Centre site.
