Description

Combining 20 live songs, over 300 projected images and one unforgettable story, Haley-Marie brings to the stage...

“…AN AMAZING INSIGHT INTO ONE OF THE GREATEST BANDS OF ALL TIME.  I WAS BLOWN AWAY…” - Ronnie Brown, Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts

With years of research and musical analysis at her fingertips, Haley Marie delivers a world-class performance about four lads, how they rose to incredible fame, their connection to classical music and how they changed the world forever. 

Becoming the Beatles is definitely not a tribute act. It’s a show about four boys: one born during an air raid, one who had to reverse the strings on his guitar to make sense of it, one who stayed up late practicing with tears in his eyes and another who couldn’t read or write until he was eight. It’s also the story of a visionary young producer who was desperate to find his way out of the ‘comedy division’ at Parlophone records.

Haley Marie’s in-depth analysis reveals the re-awakening of a world devastated by war, the genius of oppressed musicians in the Deep South, the unexpected inspiration from the classical greats and the heartbreak from the death of the band’s biggest idol.

Haley Marie is a touring musician, a producer and holds a Master's of Music from Yale University. She is a three-time Carnegie Hall performer, a music historian and brings this live musical documentary to the stage with an intimate and captivating acoustic duo.

Hear first-hand how the band used flour and water to fasten their logo to the side of their van en route to Germany. How that same band was turned down by 80% of the English recording market yet defied the odds to become the most successful musical group in history.

Directed by Mary-Lu Zahalan, the world’s first graduate in the Beatles Master’s Program (Liverpool)

Tickets are $35+HST. May 4th, 2024 @ 2pm & 7pm.
