This innovative and unique show utilizing the works of The Beatles leaves the song choices completely in the hands of the audience.
This is done through request cards that audience members fill out prior to the show. On the cards, audience members only need to fill out three things: their name, their favorite Beatles song and the reason why they chose that song.
Billy McGuigan has won countless awards for his work including the Spotlight Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his performance as Buddy Holly in Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story. Billy’s love of music comes directly from his father, Bill. With an out of tune guitar and tattered Beatle chord books, Billy, his brothers and Dad would spend countless hours at the dining room table learning to play and appreciate the music we all grew up listening to. Shortly after Bill’s death in 1996, at the age of 42 after a short battle with leukemia, the McGuigan Brothers turned to the music their Dad taught them as kids to help deal with the loss of their father.
In 2021, Billy opened the McGuigan Arts Academy where he resides in Omaha, Nebraska. Students learn life skills through creative skills taught by professional artists.
