Something Has Survived: A Jurassic Park Live Reading
Ghostlight Ensemble presents the next installment of its ongoing live movie reading series: Something Has Survived: A Jurassic Park Live Reading.
Join us at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 28, at the Celtic Crown (2356 W Cullom Ave, Chicago, IL 60618) in North Center, for all the dinosaurs we can jam into the backroom of a bar.
Jurassic Park (for those who have been fossilized in amber for the last 24 years) is a 1993 science-fiction film directed by Steven Spielberg based on the book of the same name by Michael Crichton about an industrialist and his bio-engineering company that created a theme park island called Jurassic Park populated with cloned dinosaurs. Unsurprisingly, this doesn't go as smoothly as planned, dinosaurs being dinosaurs and all. People die, dinosaurs die, many sequels were spawned.
The cast is:
Dr. Alan Grant: Mark Penzien
Dr. Ellie Sattler: Jaclyn Jensen
Lexis "Lex" Murphy: Jean E. Burr
Timothy "Tim" Murphy: Chuck Quinn IV
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Kirk Jackson
John Hammond: Keith Green
Donald Gennaro: Rory Jobst
Ray Arnold: Norman J. Burt
Robert Muldoon: James Sparling
Dr. Henry Wu/Dr. Lewis Dodgson: Eric Wang
Dennis Nedry: Christopher Paul Mueller
Juanito Rostagno/Dr. Harding: Ricardo Diaz
Dinosaurs: Miona Lee
The reading is directed by Holly Robison, with stage directions read by Michael Wagman.
Join our motley cast of actors as they try to recreate a chase with a T-Rex and kitchen full of velociraptors. Grab a beer. Try not to get eaten.
There is a suggested donation of $5 at the door, which will help Ghostlight fund its upcoming season.
