The Cast of Beatlemania Hits Centenary Stage to Support Hackettstown Rotary

HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. – Centenary Stage Company and the Hackettstown Rotary Club are presenting a one-night-only concert event on May 20th at 8 p.m. with the Cast of Beatlemania. The concert doubles as a fundraiser for the Hackettstown Rotary Club with tickets priced at $35 for all seats in CSC’s Sitnik Theatre of the Lackland Performing Arts Center at 715 Grand Avenue in Hackettstown. 

The Cast of Beatlemania recalls the memories of that exciting era when the Fab Four ruled the world of rock ‘n’ roll. The Cast of Beatlemania is a U.S. Beatles tribute band formed in 1980 and is one of the longest-running Beatles tribute bands in the world. 

The Cast Of Beatlemania, founded by Lenie Colacino, “Paul” of the original hit Broadway show “Beatlemania,” captures The Beatles while performing their greatest hits. The band takes audiences on the musical journey of the Fab Four, from their start at The Cavern Club and the early years of the British Invasion through the “Sgt. Pepper”era to “Abbey Road.”

The band has toured the world, from North America to New Zealand, striving to capture the most authentic look and sound to recreate the feeling of a true Beatles live concert. The show uses authentic gear and vintage guitars to achieve the iconic sounds of John, Paul, George and Ringo. 

The Hackettstown Rotary Club is made up of established professionals from local businesses who strive to make positive changes in our local community and around the world. The Hackettstown Rotary Club runs several fundraisers throughout the year to support the International Rotary Foundation as well as local charities. These events include the annual Memorial Motor Madness Car Show, shredding events, food drives and more in addition to the annual CSC co-sponsored concert events.
