Start Trekkin is a New York based long form improv group centered around the original Star Trek television series. Start Trekkin examines humanity through the medium of the popular 60’s television show, using it as a pop-reference point for the human experience. Using scattered suggestions from the audience, the Troupe will perform a 60 minute live show, manipulating the staples of the galactic series, such as melodrama and comedy, all the way through stage combat and downright sillyness. True to form, they address the human condition, using a surprising yet familiar vessel, with original characters and off-the-cuff situations, telling a story we can all identify with.
