The Fratello Marionettes present The Frog Prince

This classic Fairytale is the story of the spoiled Princess Ofelia on the day of her birthday celebration. The Court Jesters have come to entertain us with their acrobatic feats. We soon discover that the wicked witch has transformed a handsome Prince into a frog and he is destined to live out his life in the wishing well. While playing in the meadow, the Princess Ofelia accidentally drops her new golden ball into the well. The Princess promises to grant the frog three wishes before he will retrieve her ball. Will the princess follow through with her promises, and will the frog indeed turn back into the handsome Prince?

‘THEY SAY IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is 50 years old!

The background, creation and songs of The Beatles’ revolutionary 1967  album

An illustrated lecture presented by Dulais Rhys, Ph.D

Known simply as Sgt. Pepper, some of the plaudits used to describe this groundbreaking album include: “unique … seminal … pioneering … original … revolutionary …

A year before Sgt. Pepper transformed the pop world, the Beach Boys had produced their own innovative album, Pet Sounds. During The Beatles 1966 – and final – US concert tour, the Fab Four had heard this stunning collection of songs and were inspired to create their own album.

By that time, The Beatles had had enough of touring: over 1400 performances worldwide, being constantly besieged, confined to hotel rooms, transported in armored trucks and playing more or less the same songs to screaming fans that made more noise than their instruments. It was time to move on: “We knew that we were not going to do this again. We were no longer on the buzz of fame and success.” (George Harrison)

Following their farewell concert in San Francisco on August 29, 1966, The Beatles took a break from public performance – and from each other – to contemplate their musical future.

Three months later, Paul McCartney suggested returning to the studio to record songs based on their childhood experiences in Liverpool. Fortunately for musical posterity, the other three Beatles members agreed and in November 1966, The Beatles withdrew to London’s EMI studios to start work on what would be a watershed album of iconic songs; opening with Paul’s rocking opening ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ contrasting with Ringo’s soulful rendition of ‘With a Little Help From My Friends’, George’s Eastern-influenced ‘Within You Without You’ and closing with John’s enigmatic ‘A Day in the Life’.

Two other groundbreaking songs, ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ and ‘Penny Lane’, were also earmarked for Sgt.Pepper but never made it onto the album - this presentation will reveal why.

Even the cover of Sgt.Pepper – like the music – is iconic and has its own fascinating history: 1960s pop artist, Peter Blake’s, cut-out tableau of famous people became the topic of discussion … and trivia quiz 

The songs of The Beatles continue to stand the test of time and the group’s contribution to the history of 20th century popular music remains unprecedented and unchallenged. A new generation is now experiencing the quality, variety and longevity of Beatles music which makes ‘They Say It’s Your Birthday’ - Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is 50 years old! suitable for an audience of all ages and every level of musical appreciation and knowledge.

Singing along is encouraged!
