The show takes a roughly chronological look at the history of The Beatles through their music. All in all, about 30 songs will be performed during the show with a runtime of around 2 hours, and an intermission. Other than limited onstage banter, there is very little speaking, as the show consists mostly of exact re-enactments of the Beatles' music and live performances. Along with the live music, the production includes high-definition backdrops that feature psychedelic effects, vintage television commercials, and video footage of Rain cast members recreating iconic Beatle moments.

The show begins with the actors portraying an early version of The Beatles' from 1962, their journey to America beginning with The Ed Sullivan Show, their largest concert ever at New York City's Shea Stadium, and then culminates with the breakup of the group and the end of the 1960s.

This is a great chance to expose your kids to some of the greatest tunes of all time as this is a family friendly event, with the show being appropriate for all ages. Tickets and more information can be found at or on their Facebook page.
