From the creators of Rumour Has It and Wrecking Ball comes the must-see live music event of the year: Lady Beatle – a kaleidoscopic journey through the Beatles’ most monumental hits.
Starring Australian stage and screen star Naomi Price (The Voice Australia, Beautiful: The Carol King Musical, Ladies in Black) and inspired by true accounts, Lady Beatle weaves a fantastical tale soundtracked by the Beatles’ biggest chart toppers.
Flanked by a live band, Price transports audiences to 1960s Liverpool for a rollicking magical mystery tour about four boys who changed the world of music. For the entire 70mins the audience is very much part of the ride, as Price riffs off-the-cuff, invites them to join in the big numbers, and ultimately has them on their feet for the show’s epic mega-mix finale dance party.
Available to Tour

What people are saying
Utterly brilliant… I found the show so powerfully sentimental that I was misty-eyed for much of it and was so thankful to hear the soundtrack of my life played with such verve and love. The Courier Mail
When the band plays and the voice soars, and the entire sold-out opening night crowd signs along, you know you’re at one of the best new shows of the decade. XS Entertainment
This stellar show re-imagines the greatest Beatles hits – we’re talking banger after banger here. Headliner Naomi Price is big and VERY cold, and will captivate you until the curtains close with your favourite Beatles tracks. The Urban List
Fresh and unpredictable, with some truly beautiful arrangements only enhancing the originals. Rather than wishing they hadn’t altered a classic, I found myself actually hearing the lyrics, and there the setiments, for the first time. It’s some hard-core talent that can achieve that balance. Cultural Flanerie
“Touching, relevant, inspiring, thought-provoking: everything theatre should be.”
“I heard the Beatles’ songs in a way I had never considered before. Absolutely amazing; I didn’t think it was possible.”
“It was the most exceptional piece of theatre I’ve seen in years.”
“I just loved it. Considered, energetic and enlightening. So much entertainment in 70 minutes.”
“Absolutely fabulous show! I adored Naomi Price and her band.”
- The show is unique in that it can sit equally well as part of theatre, music, and cabaret programs.Previous seasons have drawn capacity audiences and standing ovations at each performance. With great reviews, audience testimonials, production stills, professional trailer and marketing collateral all ready to go to support marketing campaigns, we will work closely with presenters to support bringing this work to a broad audience.The Little Red Company’s Rumour Has It recently had a hugely successful National Tour. Lady Beatle is the perfect follow up to that show.
