Casting Complete for Circle Theatre's Highly-Anticipated Remount of TRIASSIC PARQ
After their resoundingly successful inaugural production of the cult favorite Triassic Parq in 2015, CIRCLE THEATRE is ecstatic to announce its complete cast of their highly-anticipated remount of the show. The production will run previews starting Friday, July 14 and opens for press Wednesday, July 19, running through Sunday, August 13. The performances will be returning to the original venue, Heartland Studio, in Rogers Park, 7016 N. Glenwood Ave and will run Thursdays - Saturdays at 8:00pm, with matinees both Saturdays and Sundays at 2:30pm and industry performances every Monday at 8:00pm. Tickets go on sale this week and can be purchased via www.circletheatrechicago.org.
Triassic Parq by Marshall Pailet, Bryce Norbitz and Steve Wargo vividly brings together music, sex and singing dinosaurs in ways hitherto unimagined. Chaos is unleashed upon the not-so-prehistoric world when one dinosaur in a clan of females spontaneously turns male. The mutation spawns a chain reaction of identity crises, forcing the dinosaurs to question the very facts of life they've held as truth. Triassic Parq is an unflinching musical meditation on faith, science and love. Also, you know...DINOSAURS.
The production includes majority of the original cast members: Parker Guidry* (Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Pride Films and Plays; Rent, Theo Ubique Cabaret Theatre) as the Velociraptor of Innocence, Erin Daly* (Batboy, Griffin Theatre; Sondheim on Sondheim, Porchlight Music Theatre) as T-Rex 1, Jacob Richard Axelson (Beauty and the Beast, Fireside Dinner Theatre) as Velociraptor of Faith, Marissa Druzbanski* (The Bitchfest Club, MidTangent Productions) as Velociraptor of Science, Patrick Stengle (HAIR and Ragtime, Big Noise Theatre) as Mime-a-saurus and Caitlin Boho (Skooby Don't, Hell in a Handbag Productions; My Way, Theo Ubique Cabaret Theatre) as Morgan Freeman. Joining the cast for the newest rendition of the Parq is Veronica Garza (Tonya and Nancy: The Rock Opera, Underscore Theatre Company, Jeff Nomination - Actress in a Supporting Role - Musical; Pump Boys & Dinettes, Theatre at the Center) as T-Rex 2.
The production team includes Nicholas Reinhart* (Co-Director/Choreographer), Tommy Bullington* (Co-Director), Andrew C. Donnelly (Stage Manager), Jimmy Jagos* (Set Designer), Katerina (Costume Designer), Kenny Long (Sound Designer) and Bobby Arnold* (Producer).
