                                                   Play Synopsis:

Casey is an Elvis impersonator with everything going for him, but his act just doesn’t make it at Cleo’s bar. When Eddie, the bar’s owner, decides to boot Casey and bring in a drag act to resurrect the club, Casey’s future looks bleak. His wife Jo is growing weary of trying to make ends meet and as their finances hit rock bottom, Jo discovers she’s pregnant. Their future is up in the air until one fateful night at Cleo’s when Casey gets a break that changes everything. As drag sensation, Georgia McBride, can Casey turn his fate around? Join the road to self-discovery in this hilarious comedy. Lights! Sequins! Drag!

Roles:

Casey, 20s An Elvis impersonator who wants to make something of his life. Out of desperation he begins performing in drag as Georgia McBride, and things start changing for him. Through the course of the play he learns how to be true to himself and the people he cares about. He's married to Jo. Any Ethnicity.

NOTE: This actor must sing well and play the guitar.

Jo, 20s, Married to Casey. Super smart and sensible, very supportive of Casey. She becomes pregnant and is afraid that Casey will not be able to care for her and their baby because he's such a dreamer. She is devastated when she learns he's deceived her. Jo's the pragmatic one in the relationship. Actor of color.

Miss Tracy Mills, An older Drag Queen who bases her style on old school drag. Sharp, sensible, wise, super funny. Been there-done that kind of attitude, but also loving and supportive of Casey's potential. Must have great comic timing. Any ethnicity.

Rexy/Jason, 20s, The same actor plays both roles. Rexy is rough around the edges and is sometimes overcome by her demons, but she has a good heart. She's sassy and tough. Her drag is more modern than Tracy's. Jason is Casey's friend and landlord. Any ethnicity.

Eddie, older, more mature than Jo and Casey. He's the owner of the Cleo's, the club where Casey becomes Georgia McBride. He's striving to be a good business man and brings in a drag act to save the club. He's no nonsense, but ultimately lovable. Any Ethnicity.
