ELVIS: A MUSICAL REVOLUTION

ATHENAEUM THEATRE

Melbourne will shake, rattle, and roll when Elvis: A Musical Revolution returns for an encore season this July

 

The highly acclaimed, award-winning production of Elvis: A Musical Revolution is set to make a triumphant return to Melbourne’s Athenaeum Theatre from Saturday 27 July.

 

Back by popular demand, this strictly limited encore season will once again transport audiences on an extraordinary journey through the life and music of rock ‘n’ roll superstar, Elvis Presley – from his childhood in Tupelo, Mississippi through to his triumphant ’68 Comeback Special.

 

The musical features over 40 iconic hits, such as Jailhouse Rock, Hound Dog, That’s All Right, All Shook Up, Suspicious Minds, Heartbreak Hotel, Burning Love, Blue Suede Shoes, Good Rockin’ Tonight, Don’t Be Cruel, Are You Lonesome, Return to Sender, Teddy Bear, A Big Hunk O’ Love, See See Rider, Can’t Help Falling In Love, A Little Less Conversation, Guitar Man and more.

 

Mainstage and television star Rob Mallett (Home and Away, Aladdin, Singin’ In The Rain) will continue to shine in the role of Elvis Presley, with remaining cast members to be announced soon.

 

After captivating Melbourne audiences during its debut in 2023, the production has since gone on a nationwide tour and continues to receive rave reviews and standing ovations across the country. Now, Elvis fans have one final opportunity to immerse themselves in the timeless music and story before the curtain falls for the last time in the city.

 

Producer David Venn said: “Returning to Melbourne feels like a joyous homecoming. The overwhelming reception from our Melbourne audiences the first time around was truly heartening, and we look forward to bringing it back to the Athenaeum Theatre for the final time.”

 

Venue: Athenaeum Theatre, 188 Collins St, Melbourne
