Jurassic Park: The Musical
August 9, 2019 - August 11, 2019
A Performance by Paul Pescador
August 9, 10 and 11, 8 pm
Jurassic Park: The Musical is a three-act performance art event, which centers around Pescador’s third grade elementary school experience and his desire to transform the Michael Crichton’s novel Jurassic Park into a stage play. The overall performance becomes about naive ambitions, the scientists in Jurassic Park creating dinosaurs that they can’t control and Pescador an overzealous kid, trying to convince a class full of 10 year old kids, parents, and teachers to produce a school-wide theatrical event. This performance is part of a larger body of work, titled The Visitors about the artist’s experience growing up in the California Desert.
Expect fossils, blood, tap dancing and more!
