All things being equal, this should be a nerdy weekend for me, just not in the way you’d expect.
“Star Trek: Beyond,” the latest movie set in the rebooted universe, is in theaters.
But it’s opening the same weekend that my kids are appearing in the annual summer show at the Apollo Theater in our hometown – Martinsburg, West Virginia.
They are participating in the Apollo’s Youth Summer Theatre Workshop staging of the Elvis musical “All Shook Up.”
The show opens tonight with performances scheduled through the weekend.
I never thought I’d be faced with a choice between “Star Trek” and a musical.
Good thing I’m more nerdy about my kids.
Otherwise, the lure of “Star Trek” might be too much to resist.
