‘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.

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. Ages 12 and younger: $17 for dinner and the show, $10 for the show only. 859-236-2747. Pioneerplayhouse.com.
