Current and Upcoming Events


EARTH DAY, April 22, 2014


6:30 PM pre-show Climate Change Event

8 PM Performance

Followed by a panel discussion on recent climate change developments with actor Mike Farrell, playwright George Shea, and scientists from Caltech and JPL.

The issue of global climate change takes center stage in a compelling new one man show by George Shea, directed by Kristen Sanderson. Actor and activist Mike Farrell (B.J. Hunnicut in "M*A*S*H") plays Dr. David Keeling, the scientist whose research on CO2 gave the world its first early warnings of global warming. In this highly acclaimed performance, Farrell brings to life the quirky and brilliant man who created the Keeling Curve, the iconic chart that illustrates the rise in atmosphere CO2 levels from 1958 to the present.

6:30 pre-show Climate Change Event!

Theater Arts at Caltech and Caltech's Center for Teaching, Learning, and Outreach offer a unique educational outreach pre-show event on Earth Day! Just before the performance of "Dr. Keeling's Curve". 6:30 - 7:45 pm, a team of scientists from Caltech and JPL will be using iPads and interactive apps developed at Caltech to engage audience and community members with surprising, intriguing, and fascinating aspects of climate change through interactive visuals, simulations, and more. Ernie's Al Fresco food truck and Rose City Coffee will be on the scene!
