Meet Robert Picardo in OKC!

· No Comments

If you’re a fan of Star Trek: Voyager, you know Robert Picardo as the holographic Doctor, one of the most popular characters on the show.   He’s also appeared in Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG-1, Smallville, China Beach, The Wonder Years, and much more.  Would you like to meet this awesome actor?  If so, just be in Oklahoma City on November 6 and 7!

Mr. Picardo will be in OKC for two events.  The first is “An Evening with Robert Picardo,” a charity event that will benefit the CityRep Theatre.  It will be held at the Civic Center Music Hall in downtown OKC on the 6th (Saturday).  There will be two performances, one at 2:00 and one at 8:00.  In addition to Mr. Picardo’s talk, there will also be a Q&A session and several surprise items that will be auctioned off for charity. 

These two sessions are very, very limited—there are only 160 seats available!  There are two ticket levels.  The first is the “Voyager” ticket.  It is $50 and only gets you in the door.  If you splurge for the “Enterprise” ticket ($100 each), you’ll get admission, premium seating, and you’ll get to attend a special champagne and dessert reception after the event.  At this reception, you’ll get to meet Mr. Picardo in an informal setting, plus you’ll get a professional photo taken of the two of you!

The CityRep Theatre is also holding a special raffle.  The winner and a guest will get to have brunch with Mr. Picardo on Sunday at the Oklahoma City Museum Café.  Raffle tickets are $10 each, two for $!5, or three for $20.  Can you imagine having a private brunch with The Doctor?  How cool!

If you can’t attend the two performances, you can still meet Mr. Picardo.  He will be at All Star Comics at 6900 North May Avenue on Sunday from 2:00 to 4:00.  He will be signing autographs and chatting with fans.  Mr. Picardo may or may not be charging for autographs (the press release on the event didn’t say), but many stars do charge these days. 

I’m very excited to see Mr. Picardo.  I’ve met him once before, but it was at a sci-fi convention.  They run people through the autograph line like a herd of cattle, and there’s no time to talk to the stars.  I’m hoping I’ll get to chat a bit with him at All Star Comics since that’s a much more relaxed setting.  If you love sci-fi, take advantage of this opportunity to meet Mr. Picardo!
