HBAPA Presents THE BEATLES STORY: 1968
The Academy for the Performing Arts' Music Media Entertainment Technology (MMET) department presents its annual benefit concert with "The Beatles Story: 1968." The tribute to the Beatles doubles as a fundraiser for the department, complete with opportunity baskets and silent auctions and takes place at First Christian Church in Huntington Beach (corner of Adams & Main) on Thursday and Friday, November 1-2, at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $40 for VIP (reserved and comes with swag) and can be bought online at www.hbapa.org/see.
The freshman and sophomore classes take the stage at 6:00 p.m. in a dazzling pre-show of "The Greatest Hits of 1968." The upperclassmen will continue the entertainment at 7:30, when the night gets especially exciting for tried-and-true Beatles fans in the audience.
In typical MMET fashion, the students will craftily recreate the sounds of the Beatles' greatest songs of 1968: an awe-inspiring feat, since the Beatles' more experimental "White Album" hailed from this year. The students will show off their expertise as they take audience members on a journey of transcendental proportions.
Aside from the astounding entertainment, the concert is definitely not to be missed since all proceeds go to the MMET department and its further education of music and media.
