“A Day in the Life: A Beatles Experience” is back where the multimedia tribute began, on the stage of the Camden Opera House, for one night only – Saturday, Sept. 24, at 7:30 p.m. 

Camden native Morgan Cates, who looks more than a bit like Paul McCartney, according to the Opera House, in a news release, wrote and premiered the show when he was a senior at Camden Hills Regional High School. More than a decade later, he still puts the professional tribute on the road now and then, when he is not pursuing his high-test career as an entertainment administrator in the Boston area. 

In the release, Cates describes “A Day in the Life: A Beatles Experience” as the ultimate multimedia celebration of the most recognized band of all time, taking audiences on a sensory journey back to the turbulent decade of the 1960s.

The Beatles’ entire groundbreaking career, from Ed Sullivan to Abbey Road, is recreated through live music and five costume changes while a video backdrop depicts the highs and lows of their era. The show recreates more than 30 Beatles songs, many of which were never performed live.  

“‘A Day in the Life’ has filled the downtown opera house and provoked standing ovations in previous visits, so advance ticket purchase is encouraged,” said the Opera House, in a news release.

Choose-your-own reserved seats are $35 for adults downstairs (orchestra) and $28 upstairs in the balcony. Tickets for those younger than 18 are $20 in any seating section.
