It’s just staggering to consider that this month marks the 50th anniversary of man’s first steps on the Moon. Whether or not you were alive to witness this incredible feat, you’ll want to experience the drama surrounding one of the greatest stories in human history when APOLLO 11 – The Immersive Live Show premieres July 5 at the Rose Bowl. Staged in a groundbreaking, purpose-built venue called the Lunar Dome, APOLLO 11 is a truly immersive live show performed by 20 actors under 40,000 square feet of stunning 360° video projection featuring a full orchestral score and life-size rockets.
In this first stop of an 18-city tour, APOLLO 11 invites audiences along on an epic journey to the Moon and back. The story of the 400,000 individuals it took to accomplish this mission is told through the eyes of Ben, a retired NASA Aerospace Engineer, as he recounts those heady days to his granddaughter Sydney, who looks away from her smartphone and up to the sky long enough to consider the endless possibilities of space. This unique theatrical experience will certainly inspire audiences of all ages to imagine what the future holds through space exploration. As someone who grew up on Florida’s Space Coast, witnessing rocket launches throughout my childhood, I can’t wait to climb on board this rocket of a production. Ticket start at $25 for shows currently running through August 11th.
