McGRATHPR.com – Deertrees Theatre, Maine’s most enchanting playhouse, presents exceptional entertainment ahead.  On Saturday, July 23, 7:30 pm, “Imagine – The Beatles Solo Years” is presented by Joe Boucher’s nine-piece rock orchestra.  On Friday, July 29, 7:30 pm, Susie Pepper and Mixology debut their new show “The Songs of Celine and Barbra”.  Both performances occur at 156 Deertrees Road, Harrison. Deertrees has been serving the Greater Maine region since 1936 offering an eclectic summer season of entertainment, featuring theatrical productions and comedies, family shows, concerts annually from June through early September.  Tickets are available at deertrees-theatre.org.

On Saturday, July 23, a nine-piece rock orchestra takes the stage to perform Joe Boucher’s show “Imagine – The Beatles Solo Years”.  In 1969, The Beatles walked across Abbey Road and away from the studio where they created the most important body of work that any rock band has before or since.  “Imagine – The Beatles Solo Years” brings together the solo hits of the individual Beatles as they might have sounded had they continued their musical journey together, as if their legendary producer George Martin crafted these songs with them.  The show originates from the creative team behind the hit orchestral pops show “Piano Men – The Music of Elton and Billy” and “Classic Rock”, featuring orchestrations by Christopher Eastburn. Sponsored by Hancock Lumber.
