“A Day in The Life: A Beatles Experience,” a multimedia celebration of the most recognized band of all time, will be presented two nights only — Friday and Saturday, June 24 and 25 at 7:30 p.m. — the Camden Opera House, Elm Street/Route 1.

On Feb. 7, 1964, The Beatles arrive at JFK Airport in New York City on Pan Am Flight 101 with thousands of screaming fans clogging every inch of the airport in order to catch just a glimpse of the young lads from Liverpool. Two days later, The Beatles made their first United States television appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” an event viewed by 73 million people or approximately two fifths of the American population. This historic event in the annals of popular music is the inspiration behind the benefit event show being held for Northport Music Theater at the Camden Opera House.

Midcoast audiences can see a live performance by young rock musicians and experience a multi-sensory journey back to the turbulent and hope-filled decade of the 1960s. A collage of news depicting the highs and lows of the counterculture movement showcases the era of free love, peace and the hippies. The Beatles’ groundbreaking career from “Ed Sullivan” to “Abbey Road” will be highlighted with a tour de force light show as the band performs more than 25 Beatles songs completely live, wearing the fantastic and colorful costumes of the day. Classics such as “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Help!,” “Yesterday,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “All You Need Is Love,” “Come Together” and many more will be performed.

The decision to stage “A Day in The Life: A Beatles Experience” was student-inspired. Each of the five musicians in the cast envision their collaboration on this Beatles classic as a first effort to “pay it forward” as they enter the world of professional theater. The benefit will support the fifth season of Northport Music Theater, a professional summer music theater located on Route 1 in Northport.

The show is directed by Morgan Cates (Paul), who just graduated from Camden Hills Regional High School, playing bass guitar and vocals ably assisted by Andy Moore (Ringo) on drums; Alex Wilder (John) on guitar and vocals; Ben Whitney (George) on guitar and vocals; and Sam McKenna on keyboards.

Lighting design is by Brandon Koons; costume design, Anna Grigo; sound design, Bruce Boege; video design, Graham Alexander; and set design, stage management and poster art, Vanessa Bemis. The show is produced by Northport Music Theater. “With A Little Help From My Friends” show sponsors are Rockport Marine and Bar Harbor Bank & Trust.

The seating is general admission only, cash or check only at the door, and the show lasts for 2.5 hours with an intermission. Tickets are $18; there also is a discount $14 day-of-show ticket available (while supplies last) by calling 338-8383 between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on show days.
