The show itself takes place in the Penny Lane Hotel. As the play opens, we learn that the Beatles randomly spent a night in the Penny Lane back in 1968. For some reason (it could be that the old, crusty owner of the Penny Lane happens to hate “those long haired hippies”), everyone has forgotten that the Beatles stayed there. That is, until this mystery is uncovered by some teenage students. Hilarity ensues as multiple groups descend on the Penny Lane—a geriatric group of Beatles Fans that think they’re still eighteen, teenagers trying to raise money for a fundraiser, a jealous sister, and even a group of art thieves.
The Beatles Slept Here features a talented group of actors and actresses from both Lapeer East and Lapeer West . Mr. Spruytte is directing this play, assisted by student director and West Senior Andrew Roark, Stage Manager and East Junior Emily Boomer, and Technical Director and East Custodian, Mr. Mason. Students involved in the play include seniors PJ Eastman, Mat Sheldon, Alex Early, Michael McDonald, Alex Judd, Justin McCrory, Madison Dearing, Christina Fick, Amanda Christner, Rachele Cecchi, and Tony Brown; Juniors Paige Ostrander, Tess Strasser, Jackie Dayton, Brad Pringle, Amy
Lindblom, and Vanessa Sparks; Sophomores Ginger Eastman, Ian English, Annie Mausolf, Alyssa Garcia, Brooklyn Dearing, Jiana Lanza and Rylei McAllister; and Freshmen Ava Strasser and Andrew Schmude.
Performances are at 7 p.m. on November 8-9 and 2 p.m. on November 10. Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for students, senior citizens and LCS staff. We hope to see you there!
