Elvis Has Left the Building is an instant classic! Based on the premise that to everyone’s knowledge, The King suddenly goes missing in 1970. This hysterical play will leave you in stitches when Elvis’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker, finds an impersonator for an important live performance that will keep a certain mobster at bay. In a last minute, desperate dash, the manager has 24 hours to find Elvis or else be forced to use the impersonator. Come see how this uproariously funny, mad-dash plan plays out.
The play by mother and son team, Duke Ernsberger and Virginia Cate, is actually based on a true event in the life of Elvis Presley. But aside from that fact, the story you are about to see if totally fictitious. So come and enjoy this bit of “folklore” surrounding the life of the King of Rock and Roll!
The show runs January 17 – Feb 1 every Wednesday through Sunday.
