‘Elvis Has Left the Building!’
With Aug. 16, the day Elvis Presley died, fast approaching, thoughts turn to “The King.” In the final play of the season at Danville’s Pioneer Playhouse, it’s Dec. 20, 1970, and Elvis has disappeared. Hilarity ensues when his manager, The Colonel, desperately searches for an Elvis impersonator to replace Presley while keeping a prying reporter at bay. Dinner is 7:30 p.m., show time at 8:30 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays through Aug. 19. Tickets are $32 for dinner and the show, $18 for the show only.
