'All the King's Women' short plays focus on Elvis

The king of rock and roll is gone, but he is not forgotten. Or at least not by Lee Street Theatre, as they present “All The King’s Women” April 11-14 (Wednesday–Saturday). Performances will take place in the Black Box Theatre at the Looking Glass Artist Collective, 405 N. Lee St. (corner of Kerr Street) in Salisbury at 7:30 p.m.“All The King’s Women” is a fast-paced series of five short plays and three monologues about women and men moving in, out, and around the life of the Elvis Presley. Told in chronological order, the scenes take place between the 1940s and the present day. Samuel French describes the play as “a touching, bring-the-family comedy with a heart that captures the effects that just being a nice guy can bring to others!”
Cast members include Bethany Sinnott in “One Tupelo Saleswoman,” the hilarious opening monologue about Elvis purchasing his first guitar on his 11th birthday.
Tammie Casper, Claudia Galup, and Gina Christoffersen discuss pelvic movement and hound dogs before Elvis’ first appearance on the Steve Allen Show in “The Censor And The King.”
“In The Garden With God,” Kat Campagna is a woman who runs into Elvis in a supermarket at 3 a.m. and how it changes her life.
Mary Ann McCubbin, Celsa de Jesus, and Lori Van Wallendael are three White House secretaries gushing over the new visitor at the gate in “When Nixon Met Elvis.”
In “Warhol Explains Art to Elvis,” Claudia Galup, Jeannie Lefler and Robin Hendrick plan the invitation to the new Pop Art Elvis exhibition.
“Pink Cadillacs and God” features Sharon Doherty, Lori Van Wallendael and Bob Paolino arguing over who will or will not sell Elvis the next Cadillac.
Rodney Lippard, a guard outside of Graceland, reflects on Elvis’ goodness and charity in “One Private Guard.”
In “Leaving Graceland” a young couple, Chris Speer and Willow Catherine, and gift shop sales clerk Pat Proctor, contemplate souvenirs, Elvis and their lives.
Bob Paolino has a recurring role as the radio announcer.
Missy Barnes, an associate professor of Theatre Arts at Catawba College, serves as the director.
Admission is $10 at the door. Lee Street Theatre is not equipped to pre-sell tickets or accept credit cards. Doors will open at 7 p.m. each evening.
