Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley, into a square little town in a square little state rides a guitar-playing roustabout who changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy that'll have you jumpin' out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as "Heartbreak Hotel," "Jailhouse Rock" and "Don't Be Cruel."

NATALIE HALLER (Early 20's): a mechanic.

CHAD: a great-lookin', motorcycling, guitar-playing, leather-jacketed roustabout.

JIM HALLER (mid 40's-50's): Natalie's widowed father.

SYLVIA (mid 40's): the no-nonsense, African-American owner of SYLVIA'S HONKY-TONK.

LORRAINE: Sylvia's 16 year-old daughter.

DENNIS: a young, awkward, aspiring dentist.

MISS SANDRA: the beautiful, intellectual caretaker of the town's museum.

MAYOR MATILDA HYDE (mid 40's-50's): the town's conservative mayor.

DEAN HYDE: Matilda's 16 year-old son. He has grown up at a military boarding school.

SHERIFF EARL (mid 40's-50's): the law in town. A man of not many words.
