APOLLO 11: An Immersive 360° Adventure invites audiences go on an epic journey to the Moon and back.
The story of the 400,000 individuals it took to accomplish this mission is told through the eyes of Ben, a retired NASA Aerospace Engineer, as he recounts those heady days to his granddaughter Sydney, who finds her eyes turning away from her smartphone and up to the sky as she dreams about the endless possibilities of space. This celebration of one of mankind’s greatest achievements takes audiences on the ride of a lifetime and inspires future generations to imagine what comes next.
Staged in a groundbreaking, purpose-built venue, APOLLO 11 is a truly immersive live show performed by 20 actors under 40,000 square feet of stunning 360° video projection and brought to life by world class theater design, a full orchestral score and life-size rockets.
Premiering at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, on July 5, the show’s launch ties in the with the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s first lunar landing on July 20, 1969.
Former astronaut Charlie Duke is one of only 12 people ever to set foot on the moon, and he is now bringing that experience to millions as ambassador of the upcoming live show “Apollo 11 – An Immersive 360° Adventure.” Duke served as capsule communicator in NASA’s Mission Control for that historic mission, and went on to become the youngest person to visit the moon on Apollo 16 in April 1972 when he was just 36.
Written by Todd Kreidler and directed by Scott Faris, “Apollo 11 – An Immersive 360° Adventure” is seen through the eyes of a character who was at Mission Control in 1969 and is now telling his granddaughter about the history of the first landing.
