Northport Music Theater, located on Route 1, will present two shows, run three camps and host a benefit event this summer.

First up will be “A Day In The Life: A Beatles Experience,” a multimedia celebration of the most recognized band of all time, the Beatles. This tribute band show is directed by Morgan Cates of Camden with vocal coaching by John Gelsinger. It will be presented Saturday and Sunday, June 24 and 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the historic Camden Opera House, Elm Street/Route 1. Tickets are $18 general admission and will be $14 day-of-show.

“The Bikinis” by Ray Roderick and James Hindman will open for a two weekend-run on Friday, July 22. In the summer of 1964, four inseparable friends form a girl group, win a talent contest and make it to the top. Now, many years — and a few pounds later — The Bikinis reunite for a dazzling show of summer hits like “Heat Wave,” “It’s In His Kiss” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” The show is directed by Peter Clain with music direction by John Gelsinger.

NMT’s late season show will be “Sister Robert Anne’s Cabaret Class” by Dan Goggin, which will open Friday, Sept. 23 for a two-weekend run. A new offshoot of the wildly popular “Nunsense” musicals, this show lets the spunky and feisty Sister Robert Anne occupy the spotlight as she performs a one-woman “Nunsense” song feast with amazing vocal talent, humor and show-stopping energy. The show is directed by Tobin Malone with music direction by John Gelsinger.

Tickets for “The Bikinis” and for “Sister Robert Anne’s Cabaret Class” will be $25 for evening performances and $20 for matinees, $14 day-of-show as available. The theater seats 128 people, has general admission seating only and is handicapped accessible.

Summer Camp shows are “Into the Woods Junior” Friday through Sunday, July 15 through 17; “Bugsy Malone Junior” Saturday, Aug. 13; and “Fairy Tale Dreams” Saturday, Aug. 20.
