Rose Bowl Alerts Area Resident That Building Dome for Upcoming APOLLO 11 Show Likely to be Noisy

Published : Tuesday, May 21, 2019 | 4:56 AM

The Rose Bowl is serving notice that work on building the Lunar Dome at the stadium, which will house the new “APOLLO 11” theatrical production opening on July 5, will begin on Tuesday, May 21, and will continue through June 17, possibly resulting in significant noise impact around the neighborhood.

“APOLLO 11,” a ground-breaking new show with an original story performed by a full cast and presented inside a Lunar Dome with 40,000 square feet of video projections, will begin its tour at the Rose Bowl with shows through September, and will later move on to the OC Fair and Event Center in Costa Mesa, and finally to Space Center Houston, the official visitor center of NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.

The show will take the audience, estimated to be around a maximum of 1,600, through the thrill of the countdown of the enormous Saturn V rocket launch to man’s first step on the Moon.

“In preparation for this event, there will be significant tent build-out and event preparation noise coming from the Arroyo throughout the next month,” the Rose Bowl Operating Company announced. “While the production and build-out will take place over the next month, concluding on June 17th, the first week of structural build out will have more significant noise impacts during the day due to steel, jack-hammering and metal tent building.”

The Lunar Dome will be constructed in Parking Lot K at the Rose Bowl, the announcement said. Significant noise impacts will be between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., especially between Tuesday, May 21, and Saturday, May 25.

For any concerns, contact the Rose Bowl Stadium administrative offices during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., at (626) 577-3100.
