Casting Announcement: “The Beatle Club”

On behalf of Providence Players of Fairfax, Director Michael Donahue is pleased to announce the cast of The Beatle Club, by Teresa Sullivan.

It is the summer of 1965, and it is “the best of times and the worst of times” for global politics, America, and American families.  But in the quiet Township of Teaneck New Jersey, a suburb of New York City, teen Mary O’Shea and her three schoolmates are consumed with the imminent arrival of The Beatles at Shea Stadium.  Mary leads her lively band of friends in forming a fan club, intent on inviting the British band to stay in their homes and, in return, hopefully receiving a personal invitation to the concert. But events, both past and present, threaten to burst their youthful bubble. The Beatle Club is the story of a nostalgic and timeless memory full of endearing humor and love of friendship and family.  This is a world premiere event. Warning: This play contains strong language and adult content.  Tickets on sale now!
