Chiawana Jazz Choir to Perform Beatles Musical

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -- The Chiawana High School Jazz Choir is taking a step back in time to relive the Beatles era.

 Local musician Debi Eng created "The Beatles, A Story of Love," which is 26 Beatles songs, 25 of which Debi arranged, performed by the Chiawana students Wednesday through Saturday in the Chiawana High School Theatre.

"We're telling the story of love through the ages basically as young people, then they notice each other, fall in love, flirt, get married, there's a death and so forth. So it's kind of a drama, slash musical, rock opera, sort of piece," said Debi Eng, the creator and director.

 The performance also includes local musicians, both students and adults.  There's no recorded music.

 "The Beatles, a Story of Love" opens Wednesday night, with nightly performances through Saturday night at 7:00.  There's also a matinee Saturday afternoon at 2:00.  All seats are $12.00.  To find out more call Chiawana High School at 543-6786, extension 5605.
