On August 16, 1977, the King of Rock 'n' Roll died.
But what if that wasn't what happened?
That's exactly the question that The Wilmington Drama League is asking: what would have happened to Elvis if he lived? To kick off their 80th season, the Wilmington Drama League presents a special fundraiser performance two nights only, Friday, August 16 and Saturday, August 17.
In The Dream Come True, Elvis Presley survives on the night of August 16, 1977. He cleans up his act, gets his life back in order, and eight years later goes on a comeback tour. It stars Marcel Forestieri as Elvis Presley. Marcel wrote, directed, and is now starring in The Dream Come True. He is coming back to where he found his love of performing, the Wilmington Drama League, and giving back to the community. Marcel Forestieri spent many years as Elvis Presley (1970 to 1984), and most recently he has been performing as Jay Leno in Las Vegas. Marcel is rated the number 1 Jay Leno impersonator in the world, and sanctioned by Jay Leno himself.
The Dream Come True at the Wilmington Drama League is just that for true Elvis fans, and what better way to preserve his memory than to produce this show on the anniversary of his death. Don't miss this once in a lifetime performance!
There are two different tiers of tickets. General admission is $25. VIP tickets are $75, and include preferred seating, an autographed memento, and a champagne after-party with the star.
