The wonderful songs of Elvis Presley form the backdrop for this musical about a mysterious, leather-jacketed stranger who shakes up a small American Midwestern town in the 1950s. Librettist Joe DiPietro’s tale of the romance that ensued was inspired by Twelfth Night and other Shakespearean comedies.

On a sad note, St Mel’s Musical Society extend deepest sympathy to the O’Hara family on the recent death of Kathleen, who worked behind the scenes in some shows down through the years. Kathleen’s husband Danny and daughter Martina were prominent members of the cast, appearing in a number of past productions.
