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.”

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.
