Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley. It’s 1955, and into a square little town in a square little state rides a guitar-playing roustabout who changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy that’ll have you jumpin’ out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Jailhouse Rock,” and “Don’t Be Cruel.”
CHAD (Baritone/Tenor): a great-lookin', motorcycling, guitar-playing, leather-jacketed roustabout.
NATALIE HALLER (Alto, Early 20's): a mechanic.
DENNIS (Tenor): a young,quirky, and awkward, aspiring dentist.
JIM HALLER (Baritone, mid 40's-50's): Natalie's widowed father.
SYLVIA (Alto Belt, mid 30's): the no-nonsense, African-American owner of SYLVIA'S HONKY-TONK.
MISS SANDRA (Alto): the beautiful, intellectual caretaker of the town's museum.
LORRAINE (Mezzo Belt): Sylvia's 16-year-old daughter.
MAYOR MATILDA HYDE (Mezzo, mid 40's-50's): the town's conservative mayor.
