Relive the king of rock ‘n’ rolls come back with an award-winning actor.

To coincide with Elvis Presley’s 83rd birthday, internationally renowned Steve Michaels will star as the The King in This Is Elvis – Burbank and Vegas.

Michaels likeness to Elvis – from his outstanding voice, hair, side burns, eyes and mannerisms – have garnered him extraordinary success.

The show, which has been put together by Bill Kenwright and Laurie Mansfield, will celebrate 83 years since Elvis’ birth and 50 years since his televised special aired on NBC Television, which later came to be know as his 1968 comeback special.

The musical follows the true story of this very important moment in Elvis’ life and career, charting his journey back to stardom and his return to success as a stage performer.

Michaels’ rendition of the King has garnered him worldwide attention as he has performed alongside some of Elvis Presley’s iconic bandmates, including drummer DJ Fontana and bassist Jerry Scheff, as well as the Jordanaires and the Sweet Inspirations.

The show will recreate all the drama leading up to the comeback of Elvis and will include some of his greatest hits, including Trouble, Heartbreak Hotel, Blue Suede Shoes and Jailhouse Rock.

This Is Elvis will be at The Playhouse, in High Street, from Monday to March 10.

There will be a performance each evening at 7.30pm as well as a 2.30pm matinee on Wednesday and March 10.

Tickets, priced £28-33.50, are available from or from 01934 645544.

The Mercury has teamed up with The Playhouse to offer two lucky readers a pair of tickets to the show on March 5.

The competition will close at 10am on March 2.
