The setting is the front entrance of Graceland, the late Elvis Presley’s Memphis mansion, the time, five o’clock in the morning, three days before the estate is to be opened to the public. Two ardent Presley fans, Bev and Rootie, are camped out before the gates, each determined to be the first to enter the sacred precincts. Bev is a bewigged, middle-aged lady with too much make-up and a brassy down-home style; Rootie is young and shy and somewhat intimidated by the raucous Bev. Wary at first, the two soon progress from dispute to shared confidences and a growing compassion that, in the end, moves the essentially warm-hearted Bev to defer the place of honor to her waif-like and touchingly sincere rival.
The Indian River H. S. Theatre Department has been selected to perform at the
Fringe Festival (the world’s largest and most prestigious arts festival in the world) as
part of the American High School Theatre Festival. Get a sneak preview of the
show they will be performing in Scotland and join the Drama Club for fun, raffles
and snacks as they celebrate this honor!
