Sandler Center Announces Two New Shows: “The Aluminum Show” on Nov. 15, 2016 and “Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles” on April 12, 2017

Tickets go on Sale Friday, Sept. 30

Monday, September 26, 2016

​The Aluminum Show is coming to Sandler Center for the Performing Arts on Tuesday, Nov. 15. This new and unique show brings the material, the music and the artists together on stage in a magical, mystery-filled creation combining visual theater, dance, and humor into an exciting, multi-sensory experience, the likes of which audiences have never before seen.

This is the story of one man's incredible journey to a parallel universe — a futuristic planet made entirely of aluminum. At first glance this world seems vastly different than ours, but a second glance reveals it is actually quite similar.

Aluminum pipes come to life right before the audience's very eyes, transforming into imaginary, mysterious, and playful characters. Much like in our world, the aluminum universe is also plagued by a fight between good and evil, where the forces of beauty and compassion strive to triumph over the forces of intrigue and fear. 

The new show was written and directed by Lior Kalfo, creator of the internationally successful shows "Voca People," "Fantasy," and "Glow," with choreography by Ido Tadmor, one of Israel's foremost choreographers, and under the artistic direction of Ilan Azriel, co-creator of the international Aluminum Show. 

Experience an all-new show when the internationally acclaimed Beatles concert, "RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles," makes its Sandler Center debut on Wednesday, April 12 at 7:30 p.m. 

As "the next best thing to seeing The Beatles!" (Associated Press), RAIN performs the full range of The Beatles' discography live onstage, including the most complex and challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for an audience.

In addition to the updated sets that include brand new LED, high-definition screens and multimedia content, new songs have also been included with the launch of the 2016 tour. Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture and nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that's as infectious as it is transporting.

From the early hits to later classics ("I Want To Hold Your Hand," "Hard Day's Night," "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Let It Be," "Come Together," "Hey Jude" and more), this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends!

 

Tickets for both shows go on sale Friday, Sept. 30 at 10 a.m.
