A Klingon Christmas Carol 

When: Sat., Dec. 15, 4 p.m. 2012
Price: $20-$28
Go where no man has gone before . . . A Klingon Christmas Carol. The classic Dickens tale of ghosts and redemption has been adapted to reflect the Klingon Warrior Code of Honor and then translated into tlhIngan Hol (Klingon language). The entire play is performed in original Klingon with English subtitles for those who don’t speak the galactic dialect. Plus there will be narrative analysis from the Vulcan Institute of Cultural Anthropology (a thing that really exists). But what makes this particular performance special is that Dr. Marc Okrand, the creator of Klingon language, will be in attendance. And seeing that he’s written the Klingon dictionary, I bet he’s got something to say.
