La Palma Ave. in Anaheim Hills.
TRIASSIC PARQ - THE MUSICAL, 2010's Best Musical winner at FringeNYC, comes to The Chance straight from an off-Broadway run The New York Times called "Flat-out ingenious". A fresh new musical with as much heart as raunchy wit, TRIASSIC PARQ is the story of Jurassic Park told from the perspective of the dinosaurs. It takes a minor premise from the movie - that a handful of the genetically engineered female dinosaurs have spontaneously turned male - and runs with it until the audience's legs get tired. An epic tale of love, loss and interspecies fornication, these resurrected reptiles will touch you in ways both moving and inappropriate. The ride is ridiculous to say the least, but beneath the absurdity and chaos is a sincere story of identity crisis and loss of faith.
