YESTERDAY AND TODAY: THE INTERACTIVE BEATLES EXPERIENCE


Produced by Billy McGuigan


Yesterday and Today: The Interactive Beatles Experience is the nation’s most innovative and unique show utilizing the works of the Beatles.

This amazing group, anchored by brothers Billy, Ryan and Matthew McGuigan, does away the worn out “tribute” format of bad wigs and fake accents. Instead, they perform as themselves and leave the song choices completely in the hands of the audience. This is done through request cards that audience members fill out prior to the show. On those cards, the audience member only needs to fill out three things: their name, their favorite Beatles song and the reason why they chose that song. The cards are collected and two minutes before the show begins, a set list is created based upon the songs chosen by that particular audience.

As an added treat, the reasons that the audience members chose those songs make up the narrative of the evening.

A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Based upon the book by Charles Dickens
Adapted for the stage by Scott H. Severance
Directed by Scott H. Severance

Produced by PerSeverance Productions
In cooperation with CMI Entertainment

A powerful story of redemption, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, has enchanted audiences the world over with its simple message of Holiday joy. Ebenezer Scrooge, that most unrepentant and miserly of fellows, is made to see the light as he survives a merciless battery of revelations by the ghosts of his own life: Jacob Marley and the Christmas Spirits of Past, Present, and Future.

With script adaptation, direction, and a flawless performance as Scrooge, by award-winning 40 year theater veteran Scott H Severance, this new adaptation of Dickens’ ever popular classic fills the stage with first class professional actors, lush costumes, stunning sets and puppetry, song and dance, a heavy dose of humor, and a timeless message. With the music of 26 beloved traditional carols of the season woven throughout this classic tale, A Christmas Carol is the perfect way to begin the holiday festivities.

Peter and Alice

by John Logan

Based on the real-life meeting of Alice Hargreaves and Peter Davies at the opening of a Lewis Carroll exhibition in 1932, this moving drama lays bare the lives of these two amazing individuals. In doing so, the play examines the lost innocence of the boy and girl who served as the inspiration for Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland.
