What began as four grammar school prodigies who formed the band STOCKWOOD has evolved into BEATLOUTION, an incredible all-live musical tribute to the Fab-Four. These seasoned musicians represent the youthful look and personalities the original guys had in the mid 1960s. Every performance results in multiple standing ovations, and welcomes life-long Beatles' fans as dedicated BEATOLUTION fans! Newsweek saw fit to include the band (as STOCKWOOD) in their Spring, 2012 Edition, Commemorative Issue of THE BEATLES. They, along with only four other Chicagoland bands appear on the "Tribute Bands around the Globe" page!

Sleeping Beauty

A Christmas Tale…Originating with an English cast, this production involves King Humphrey and Queen Bea who are so delighted at the birth of their daughter, Aurora, that they throw the biggest party the kingdom has ever seen! However, when they forget to invite the land's most powerful sorceress, Vestra, their happiness soon turns sour. Vestra casts a spell on the baby, proclaiming that on her 18th birthday, she will prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die!
