Galaxy Quest in Concert to Premiere During San Diego Comic-Con 2019

The cult classic-sci-fi spoof Galaxy Quest in Concert arrives at Jacobs Music Center – Copley Symphony Hall on July 19, just in time for San Diego Comic-Con! Academy Award nominated composer David Newman conducts the San Diego Symphony performing his hilarious, fun-loving and, ultimately heroic score. This concert is part of the popular “Bayside Summer Nights” Season.

For those who don’t know of the film, the stars of a 1970s sci-fi show – now scraping a living through re-runs and sci-fi conventions – are beamed aboard an alien spacecraft. Believing the cast’s heroic on-screen dramas are historical documents of real-life adventures, the band of aliens turn to the ailing celebrities for help in their quest to overcome the oppressive regime in their solar system. Galaxy Quest was directed by Dean Parisot and stars Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Daryl Mitchell, and Sam Rockwell.
