07/06/2016 00:00:00 Holodeck Follies - Improvised Star Trek & Variety Show Southeast $10 - $19

Gathering the most interesting talent from across Toronto's diverse entertainment community, Holodeck Follies is a fast-paced 90-minute show filled with improvised Star Trek episodes and special guest performers from the musical, stand-up, and sketch comedy community. Each improvised episode boasts engaging musically improvised songs underscored by musical director Jason Zinger. Not all performers are versed in the Star Trek universe, or even focused on the sci-fi genre. Those performers are incorporated seemlessly into the evening, to reach the wider audience and to keep the uber-Trekkie references to a dull roar.
