Vaca High string quartet joins touring Beatles musical

Vaca High string quartet joins touring Beatles musical

When the touring show "In My Life: A Musical Theatre Tribute to the Beatles" comes to the Vacaville Performing Arts Theatre on May 3, be on the lookout for two quartets -- not just one.

The Vacaville High School String Quartet has the privilege of joining the professional actors on stage to add an element of orchestral texture to the evening.

"In My Life" is the musical retelling of the Beatles story through the eyes of manager Brian Epstein and featuring the live music of tribute band Abbey Road. The band features Chris Paul Overall ("Paul"), Gregory Wilmot ("John"), Jesse Wilder ("George") and Axel Clarke ("Ringo"). Brian Epstein is played by Alxander Jon. The production includes multimedia, period costumes and vintage instruments. It has toured for years, with a critic for the Orange County Register at one point declaring, "If you see one tribute show, see this one --smart and loads of fun."
