The Summer Concert Series at Centenary Stage Company wraps up on Saturday, Aug. 4, with a musical extravaganza, “Beatlemania Now!” The show is a live musical tribute to the Beatles, performed at 8 p.m. in the David and Carol Lackland Center on the campus of Centenary College, according to a press release from the Centenary Stage Company.
“Beatlemania Now!” recreates the energy of an original Beatles show set against a backdrop of iconic images evoking many memories from the 1960’s, the release said.
“Not only does this group capture the Beatles’ music, look, and style, but the background video puts the audience in the 1960’s, evoking the hope, deep sadness, and energy of the time,” said critic Harriet Diamond.
Tickets for “Beatlemania Now!” are $30 to $35 in advance and $35 to $40 on the day of the performance with discounts for children under 12. Tickets are available through the Centenary Stage Company Box office at 715 Grand Avenue, open 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and two hours prior to each performance. Tickets may also be purchased online at www.centenarystageco.org, or by calling the box office at 908-979-0900.
