Co-founded by veteran Los Angeles theatre producers Michael Blaha and Lee Costello and actor David Dean Bottrell (Boston Legal), Sci-Fest LA’s mission is to produce an annual festival of new, beautifully realized, and visually compelling sci-fi one-acts featuring many well-known actors from beloved sci-fi and fantasy franchises. Their most recent event (a special performance of Orson Welles’ War of the Worlds) featured a cast that included Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: TNG, Big Bang Theory), Walter Koenig (“Lt. Chekhov” on the original Star Trek series), Michael Dorn (Star Trek: TNG), René Auberjonois and Armin Shimerman (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Tim Russ (Star Trek: Voyager), Linda Park (Star Trek: Enterprise), Emmy-nominee Jason Ritter (Parenthood, The Event), and Dean Haglund (The X-Files).
