Welk Resorts Theatre is reopening with a season that includes a Beatles tribute band, the band composed of the Lennon family and a nostalgic favorite, “Forever Plaid.”
Hard Day’s Night Southern California’s #1 Beatles Tribute Show has been thrilling audiences with tight harmonies and flawless note-for-note instrumental renditions of Beatle hits. Hard Day’s Night has honed their show to become one of the most musically and visually satisfying Beatle tribute acts in the world. Hard Day’s Night is based in Los Angeles and perform throughout North America, Europe and Japan. Their custom-tailored costumes, vintage instruments, Liverpudlian dialect and precise attention to every detail recreate the magic, music, wit and wisdom of the total Beatle phenomenon.
Ticket prices for Hard Days Night are $35 with performances every Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. from June 20 – August 29.

Venice is a band from Venice Beach, California that consists of two sets of brothers: Michael and Mark Lennon, and their cousins, Kipp and Pat Lennon. As a band, the Lennons have recorded and performed together since the 1980s. Their music reflects many of their influences while growing up in the small, eclectic and culturally diverse beach town for which they are named. Venice’s sound is at once familiar and fresh, their classic rock and folk influences apparent in their pop sensibilities. Their hybrid of folk/rock/soul is relevant, alive and still growing, with many fans worldwide considering them the torchbearers of the Southern California, west coast sound.
Ticket prices for “Venice” are $35 with a single performance on Saturday June 23.
“Forever Plaid” is one of the most popular and successful musicals in recent memory. This deliciously fun revue is chock-full of classic barbershop quartet harmonies and pitch-perfect melodies.
Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered that they shared a love for music and then got together to become their idols- The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo’s and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge’s family’s plumbing supply company, they became “Forever Plaid.” On the way to their first big gig, the “Plaids” are broadsided by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end that the story of Forever Plaid begins. Singing in close harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with overzealous precision, the “Plaids” are a guaranteed smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that keeps audiences rolling in the aisles when they are not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950s.
Ticket prices for “Forever Plaid” are $55 for performance only and $75 to include a pre-show three course meal at the Welk Resort’s Canyon Grille Restaurant. Matinee performances are on Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. and an Evening performance on Saturday beginning at 8 p.m. From July 14 through August 26.
