DG Productions presents Let it Be! a Musical, A celebration of the 60s through the Beatle’s Music on March 17, 18, 24 and 25.
The musical will feature both a show and dinner at the Crowsnest Pass Golf Club.
Debbie Goldstein, the director and producer said she had an epiphany one night about how “everybody loves The Beatles” and decided on a Beatles musical.
After the call for auditions, she ended up with a total of eight cast members. They include a cattle rancher, choir members from Fernie and a new mother. The musical will feature music exclusively from The Beatles and cover the themes of war and “hippy” culture.
“Towards the end, it’s more of a comment that things haven’t really changed. We still have a war. We’ve got the Russian-Ukrainian war, and there will be a video of that in there and how it’s still killing people... There are still soldiers in the world fighting somewhere,” said Goldstein.
On a lighter note, she added that everyone who attends is welcome to sing along with the music while it is being performed. One of the songs will even feature one of the actresses preforming one of the songs in sign language.
“It’s just a beautiful, very simple setting, but it’s lovely how they’re doing it,” said Goldstein.
The event is put on entirely by volunteers, with none of the performers being paid, including Goldstein. She noted the doors open and food is available at 6:30 p.m. but the play does not start until 8 p.m. The food will be served in a buffet style with a wide variety of food to accommodate “almost all” dietary restrictions people may have.
Tickets are on sale for the event at Copy Magic, Eventbrite, and Servus Credit Union. They cost $79 and include a free drink ticket. Tickets will be available at the door of the Crowsnest Golf Club if any of them are still available. For more information you can email email@example.com or call 403-563-6454.
