PAC presents “All the King’s Women”


PRINCETON – The Prairie Arts Council recently announced “All the King’s Women,” kicking off at the PAC theater in Princeton on Friday and Saturday, March 23 and 24, with a curtain time of 7:30 p.m.

“All the King’s Women,” is the story of Elvis Presley told through the eyes of seven men and women – some enthralled, some appalled and all obsessed.

The show features a fast-paced series of five comedic scenes and three monologues based on the life of Elvis Presley. From Tupelo Mississippi where 11-year-old Elvis wanted a BB gun instead of a guitar to The Steve Allen Show, from President Richard Nixon’s office to Andy Warhol’s studio, this is a touching, bring-the-family comedy that captures the spell that fame, generosity and just being a nice guy can cast on others.

Tickets can be purchased by calling (815) 879-0701 and leaving a message. Reserved seats are $10 per person. Tickets can be picked up at the door on the night of each performance.

Director Dixie Schroeder is excited about presenting this unique show. “I was on the stage crew that performed the show at Stage 212 in LaSalle. It is a lot of fun, especially for Elvis fans,” said Schroeder. “We touch on every decade from the 1940’s onward, providing the audience with the visual treat of costumes and hair styles of the era.”

The cast of the show includes Bobette Roberson of Ottawa, Marie Pinter of Oglesby, Karen Rogers of Utica, Julie Grady, Andy Marti, Jill Marti and Ken Schroeder and Ryan Matthew Ziegler of Princeton. Producer of the show is Jill Marti.
