The Off-Broadway cult-classic musical, Triassic Parq, has it's Chicago Premiere with CIRCLE THEATRE, co-directed by Tommy Bullington and Nicholas Reinhart, and music directed by Justin Harner. The production opens Friday, September 18 at 8:00pm at Heartland Studio in Rogers Park. Check out a first look below!

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.
