DETAILS

From “The King” to an all-out Queen!
Casey is a broke Elvis impersonator with a baby on the way. When the owner of the run down bar where he works hires a drag show to attract more customers, Casey is out of a job. Or is he?

Filled with music, humor, and plenty of sequins, this joyful, acclaimed new play is a reminder that the path to prosperity and fulfillment may sometimes take an unexpected turn. Don’t miss this hilarious and heartwarming show taking the nation by storm.
