BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Last week’s Concert in the Park series featured the touring Off Broadway Beatlemania Again performance, produced by Richard Morello. Original cast members from the Broadway Musical Beatlemania, including Morello playing Ringo, displayed their musical talents, taking the sea of Berkeley Heights residents through memory lane as the band interacted with the crowd in full Beatles' attire and accent.
Among the large crowd of fans were residents from concert sponsor Autumn Lake Healthcare of Berkeley Heights located on Cottage Street. Employees walked 'n' rolled the group of residents across the street to the park to enjoy the evening. The "Beat" music of The Beatles that combines "rock 'n' roll, skiffle, doo-wop and R&B" connected this multi-generational crowd as they sang along and tapped their foot to the iconic music.
In addition to Autumn Lake Healthcare of Berkeley Heights handing out totebags, Delicious Heights, concert co-sponsor, handed out over 500 ice cream sandwiches and bakery treats and Connect One Bank gave away sunglasses and pens. Smith Chiropractic Foundation and Taylor Rental provided the free bottled water and popcorn, respectively.
The free concerts are presented by the Recreation Commission's Special Events Committee and through the partnership with the Suburban Chamber of Commerce are brought to the community through their season long sponsors: Berkeley Aquatic Club, Rotary Club of Berkeley Heights, Smith Chiropractic Foundation and Grain & Cane Gastrotruck. There are drawings at each concert for gift certificates to Goodman's Deli, Delicious Heights and Giovanni's Bistro and Bar.
