‘Elvis Has Left the Building’ — Burnsville
April 21 @ 6:00 pm
Eagan Theater Company will perform the comedy “Elvis Has Left the Building” on Friday, April 21, and Saturday, April 22, at Buck Hill Event Center, 15400 Buck Hill Road, Burnsville. The dinner theater event is being presented in partnership with the Eagan 55 plus/Seniors Group.
The central plot is that Elvis goes missing just as his manager, The Colonel, desperately needs him to do a performance in order to settle a gambling debt, leading to the creation of what is possibly the world’s first Elvis impersonator. A determined investigative reporter and an inept office worker round out the cast.
Garrick Dietze, who will direct “Elvis Has Left the Building,” has 14 years experience as a director, actor and producer with various Twin Cities theater companies including Chameleon Theatre Circle and Minneapolis Musical Theatre.
“This play is fun, great escapism with lots of physical comedy, comedic zingers and, of course, Elvis’ iconic music,” Dietze said.
Tickets for the dinner and play are $42 per person and are available online at www.etc-mn.org or at the Eagan Community Center, 1501 Central Parkway, Eagan. Tickets are not available at the door on performance nights. Doors open for social hour and games at 6 p.m., with dinner at 7 p.m. and the curtain at 8 p.m. Dinner will include some of “the King’s” favorite foods, including fried chicken, and a special Blue Hawaii drink will be available from the cash bar.
