“The Legend of Georgia McBride” takes center stage at Dorset Theatre Festival

Aug. 3-19—DORSET— Dorset Theatre Festival continues its 40th anniversary season with the regional premiere of “The Legend of Georgia McBride” by Matthew Lopez, running for 16 performances Aug. 3-19, at the Dorset Playhouse, 104 Cheney Road, Dorset.

In “The Legend of Georgia McBride,” Casey is young, broke, and his wife is having a baby when he loses his gig as an Elvis impersonator. But when his club brings in a drag act led by Miss Tracy Mills, Casey is given the opportunity to trade one sequined outfit for another. A critic’s pick wherever it plays, this heart-warming, music-filled comedy celebrates finding your own voice and singing your own song.

Joey Taranto (“Kinky Boots” original Broadway cast) leads the cast as Elvis-impersonator-turned-drag-queen, Casey. David Turner (Broadway’s “Sunday in the Park with George”), will portray the ferociously funny Miss Tracy Mills.

As a supplement to the show, audiences are invited to a pre-show discussion on the history of drag and Elvis impersonation at 6 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 10 in the Playhouse Café. For more information, visit
