From Boy Bands to The Beatles to opera, The Wheeler Opera House is aiming to cover all tastes Jan. 20-25.

The Boy Band Project, Friday, Jan. 20, 6:30-9:30 p.m.

The Boy Band Project harkens back to when the boy band phenomenon dominated pop culture.



The boys re-imagine the sound, movement, and energy of NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, Hanson, One Direction, 98 Degrees, O-town, BoyzIIMen, Jonas Brothers and others. The Boy Band Project features a group of boys direct from Broadway’s Wicked, Hairspray, Mamma Mia, The Book of Mormon, Altar Boyz, and Rock of Ages.

Classic Albums Live, The Beatles, is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 21.

Classic Albums Live performs Beatles: Let It Be, Saturday, Jan. 21, 7:30 p.m.




Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live takes the greatest albums and recreates them live on stage note for note, cut for cut.

“Think of it as a recital,” he says. “These albums are historic and stand the test of time.”

Forgoing costumes and impersonations, Classic Albums Live has found success in concentrating solely on the music.

“We don’t dress up or wear any sort of costume. We just stand there and play. All of our energy is put into the music. We want the performance to sound exactly like the album,” he says.
