Beatlemania to grip the Brolga
INTERNATIONAL hit tribute Beatlemania On Tour is returning to Australia this September for a limited run of shows, including at the Brolga Theatre.
The production's last visit to Australia was in 2013 when they performed nationally.
Bringing a new Australian cast this time, of Cameron Charters (as Paul McCartney), Zac Coombs (as John Lennon), Brent McMullen (as George Harrison) and Ben Harper (as Ringo), fans can expect a fresh experience with state-of-the-art updates to production and lighting plus revamps to the show's huge collection of reproduction Beatles costuming. Of course, all the Beatles' biggest and most treasured hits - 40 songs in total, including Can't Buy Me Love, Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, Yellow Submarine and Hey Jude - will still be performed live, in their original key and on replica Beatles instruments with unseen attention to detail creating the sincerest Beatles sound around.
"There is so much detail to get right for a show of this calibre; aside from getting the music spot-on we're expected to nail the characters, voices, little movements. It's a lot of work but it's worth it when you see the end result and know that real Beatles' fans will appreciate it,” says Charters, who taught himself to play the bass left-handed for his role as Paul McCartney.
With previous sold-out shows across the US, Canada, Dubai, Hong Kong, New Zealand and South Africa under its belt, this production is looking to uphold its reputation as one of the world's best Beatles tributes.
Beatlemania On Tour will perform at the Brolga Theatre, 5 Walker St, Maryborough, on September 3 at 8pm. Tickets: $49 adults, $30 children. Phone 4122 6060 or visit ourfrasercoast.com.au.
