Cheesy Line-Reading Contest
Acting can be difficult, especially when the dialogue is written by George Lucas post-1990 or Tommy Wiseau. We like to criticize the actors in our favorite sci-fi movies and TV shows, but is it really their fault? Come see if fellow Escape Velocity attendees can deliver a monologue about sand better than Hayden Christensen, or scream about bees with more sincerity than Nicolas Cage. May the cheesiest actor win!

It's an interactive, hilarious performance that involves audience participation, and celebrates science fiction in Pop Culture.
