September 24…. Lubbock Symphony Orchestra: A Tribute to The Beatles - Imagine a night with The Beatles playing in concert with a symphony orchestra. What would that have sounded like? Find out for yourself when Classical MysteryTour performs live in concert. The four musicians in Classical Mystery Tour look and sound just like The Beatles, but it is more than just a rock concert. The full show presents some 30 Beatles tunes sung, played, and performed exactly as they were written. Hear “Penny Lane” with a live trumpet section; experience the beauty of “Yesterday” with an acoustic guitar and string quartet; enjoy the rock/classical blend on the hard edged “I Am the Walrus.” From early Beatles music on through the solo years, it the best of The Beatles like you’ve never heard them: totally live. Classical Mystery Tour features Jim Owen (John Lennon) on rhythm guitar, piano, and vocals; Tony Kishman (Paul McCartney) on bass guitar, piano, and vocals; David John (George Harrison) on lead guitar and vocals; and Chris Camilleri (Ringo Starr) on drums and vocals. Martin Herman, who transcribed the musical scores note for note from Beatles recordings, conducts many of the Classical Mystery Tour concerts. From the recent success of The Beatles Rock Band to the release of the re-mastered Beatles albums, the demand for Beatles material is greater than ever. Many Beatles fans never had the opportunity to experience a live Beatles show; Classical Mystery Tour offers that live experience in the comfort of a concert hall.

September 25 - 26…..Children and Adults Theatrical Studio Presents "Dining Room" - A.R. Gurney's comedy of manners, "The Dining Room," will be directed by Chris Davis. The play is set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household, the place where the family assembled daily for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special occasions. The action is comprised of a mosaic of interrelated scenes—some funny, some touching, some rueful—which, taken together, create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class WASP. The actors change roles, personalities and ages with virtuoso skill as they portray a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids. Each vignette introduces a new set of people and events; a father lectures his son on grammar and politics; a boy returns from boarding school to discover his mother's infidelity; a senile grandmother doesn't recognize her own sons at Christmas dinner; a daughter, her marriage in shambles, pleads futilely to return home, etc. Dovetailing swiftly and smoothly, the varied scenes coalesce, ultimately, into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity. The cast includes Pat Price, Andy Hernandez, Kim Klafka, Mickie Klafka, Jeff Shirey and Michelle Trice. Be sure to get your tickets at Children and Adults Theatrical Studio, 2405 34th St; 7:30 p.m.
