It was Elvis Presley at his most charismatic, and only a small group of fans had the privilege of being there... until now. With actor Casey Ryan as Elvis, the musical tribute show Elvis '68 relives a historic moment in music history, leather suit and all. This stage re-creation of the crooner's 1968 live comeback special explores a pivotal moment in the life and career of Elvis Presley. At the time, Elvis hadn't played a live show in seven years and his popularity was fading. But what was meant to be a safe Christmas concert turned into an intimate jam session, as Elvis and friends intercut rock 'n' roll hits with storytelling and audience interaction. Learn More

After seeing their excellent production of "Night of the Living Dead" on Halloween this time I went into the Maverick Theater with high expectations to see their adaptation of " Santa Claus Conquers the Martians." Not only did they COMPLETELY...continued
The Maverick Theater, in its quest to perform cinema on stage, has pulled from the vaults a Christmas tale that only Hollywood could have conceived. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is so ridiculous, so absurd, it’s entertaining.
Martian leaders are worried because their children are not sleeping and eating. Consulting a ancient Martian sage, they are advised that the children of Mars are rebelling due to the society’s overly rigid structure; from infancy, all their education is fed into their brains through computers, and they are not allowed to play or have fun. The only way to help the children is to allow them to have toys. To do this, they need a Santa Claus. The Martian leaders decide to kidnap Santa Claus and bring him to Mars to make toys for the children.
The production captures all the hokey B-movie elements such as costumes, set pieces and corny character portrayals. The show is suitable for kids 5 and up, and adults will enjoy the “SNL” style of the performances.
