Written by Marshall Pailet, Bryce Norbitz and Steve Wargo, the musical debuted during the 2010 New York International Fringe Festival. The Off-Broadway run reunites cast members from the FringeNYC staging and a recent fall reading of the musical. Triassic Parq will officially open June 27 for a run through Aug. 5. 

The cast includes Lindsay Nicole Chambers ( Hairspray, Legally Blonde), Brandon Espinoza ( Gypsy, Les Miserables), Wade McCollum ( Cabaret), Claire Neumann ( The Spidey Project), Lee Seymour ( Hamlet), Shelley Thomas ( Brooklyn, Zanna, Don't!) and Alex Wyse ( Lysistrata Jones).

Here's how it's billed: "Raucous and hilarious, Triassic Parq The Musical 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 science, faith and love. Like all great tales laden with import, it is narrated by Morgan Freeman."

Triassic Parq has choreography by Kyle Mullins and musical direction by Zak Sandler. The production has set design by Caite Hevner, costume design by Dina Perez, lighting design by Jennifer Schriever and sound design by Carl Casella and Chris Cronin.

The run is presented by Amas Musical Theatre, in association with Flying Squirrel Theatricals, RD Productions, Bulldog Theatrical, P2 Creations and The Weekly World News.
