If you haven’t been to the Planetarium at Orange Coast College, you need to put it on your to do list. The regular showings in their dome theater are awesome. But something I am even more excited about is checking out James Hood’s MESMERICA that is playing at the Planetarium thru March. Normally I would try to go first and give you my review, but the shows are quickly booking up with only a few dates left in February and some in March. That might be all the ‘review’ you need.
So what is Mesmerica? Mesmerica is a family-friendly (ages 6+), visual music journey which combines the music of James Hood (a Grammy-nominated composer and percussionist) with 3D animated art curated from artists around the world.
“I want ‘Mesmerica’ to inspire you into taking a journey with me inside the mind, to engage your senses and feelings with a miraculous alchemy of sound and light!”
Tickets range from $12 to $39 and can be purchased here. For more information, discount codes and the official trailer, check out the OCC Planetarium page here. The Mesmerica show is 1 hour long. Children under 6 will not be admitted.
