Megan Daalder – Eureka and the Biomass Man – Oct 18- Nov 10th 2014
5 Car Garage opens Saturday 18th October for Eureka and The BIOMASS in anticipation of their sci-fi mini-musical, debuting on Nov. 6, 7 and 8th.
The fallout of our current ecological conundrums set the stage for this musical love affair between a synthetic organism and a human being in the year 2100.
Through puppeteering, original music and onstage special effects the performance will present a Beauty and the Beast for the 22nd century.
