Elvis Has Left The Building Jan. & Feb 2020

The Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) is happy to present Elvis Has Left the Building, written by V. Cate & Duke Ernsberger, and directed by Ann Harper. Elvis Has Left the Building is a comedy about the disappearance of Elvis Presley in the winter of 1970. The play is set in the office of The Colonel, Elvis’ manager. No one can find the King of Rock n’ Roll and he must be found.

The Colonel is played by James Merrit, a newcomer to the TAPA stage but not to theater. His secretary, Trudy, is Sandra Koops, who will be recognized by many as a TAPA veteran. Jason Hovey is cast in his first acting role ever as Roscoe, the office boy. Edward Egging is making his TAPA debut playing The Colonel’s friend Candy after a long absence from the stage. Rounding out the cast is Whitney Wilks, a second timer at TAPA, playing ace reporter Jill Tanner. Ann Harper is directing her fourth play at the Barn Community Playhouse and is pleased with the result. She is sure audiences will like it, too.

Performances for Elvis Has Left the Building are on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:00 and Sundays at 2:00 starting with the Opening night Gala on January 24 and goes through February 9, 2020. The Barn Community Playhouse is also commonly known as The Red Barn located at 1204 Ivy in Tillamook, Oregon. Purchase tickets here
