Garland, Texas, — Garland Civic Theatre will present a production of “All the King’s Women”, a delightful story of Elvis Presley and his fans, by Lugi Jannuzzi beginning with a preview performance on November 14, 2013 at the small theatre of the Granville Arts Center, 300 North 5th Street in downtown Garland. The production will run Friday through Sunday, November 15 – December 7, 2013 with an additional Thursday performance on November 21. Call the Arts Center Box Office at 972-205-2790 for tickets or order them online at www.garlandartsboxoffice.com. All tickets are $22 which includes service fee. There are discounts available for KERA members and groups of 10 or more. Tickets for the preview on November 14th are $17.

Ryan Matthieu Smith is directing the production and the characters are played by Neeley Jonea’, Justin Labosco, Rebekah Michaele, Cynthia Schafer, and Susan Williams. It is the story of Elvis Presley told through the eyes of 17 women! Some Enthralled! Some Appalled! ALL OBSESSED! A fast paced play that affects the senses – heart, mind, and soul – based on the life of Elvis Presley. From Tupelo, Mississippi where 11 year old Elvis wanted a BB Gun instead of a guitar, to The Steve Allen Show, from President Richard Nixon’s office, to Andy Warhol’s studio, from Cadillac Salesmen, to Graceland Guards. This is a touching, bring-the-family comedy where someone doesn’t have to be an Elvis fan going in to walk away with a deep appreciation for ‘The King.’
