The show in Melbourne has just received a second extension, playing through to December.
“We couldn’t be happier about the response from audiences, and look forward to celebrating the life and music of Elvis Presley with even more Elvis fans and theatre lovers across the country,” Producer David Venn says. “It’s a testament to our cast and creative team, as well as the enduring legacy of The King.”
Ahead of the shows around the country, a nation-wide talent search will commence, to cast Young Elvis in each city. Young Elvis performs song and dance numbers, as well as a number of dialogue scenes.
