Aquarium Hosts The Lollygaggers, an All-Ages Comedy About Climate Change
2015-08-13 · By Editor
The Earth’s climate is changing. With melting ice caps and water levels rising, animals have been forced to relocate. Where will they go? The Lollywoods, of course! In this sketch-meets-global-warming musical, animals and puppets are forced to coexist in a brand new climate. Come get your laugh on, and learn a little about global warming. You can even ask a NASA climate scientist your own questions about climate change!
Written by Josh Willis, Ph.D., an oceanographer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory specializing in sea level rise and ocean warming, and Rani O’Brien, theater director, The Lollygaggers is a way to communicate climate changes to a new audience. Willis and O’Brien believe theater can help bring about change and provoke thought for all ages. They see The Lollygaggers as a way of taking the cause of climate change awareness to the streets by blending comedy and science together.
Have a laugh and learn more about climate change on Sunday, August 16, 2015, from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at Aquarium of the Pacific, 100 Aquarium Way. The event costs $10.00 per person; $8.00 for Aquarium members. For more information visit http://www.aquariumofpacific.org/events/info/the_lollygaggers/.
