"I just have to enter my daughter (Francesca) in this contest! Although she is only 12, out of a million topics she could have picked for her history fair project, she and her friend (Kirsten) picked "Elvis, The King!" They spent months researching, writing, planning, and learning about Elvis and how he changed the world. Their project was selected from their school to move on to the County! Even if we don't win tickets, I plan to take her and her friend to the play... I think they love seeing their research come to life!" -Judy Ball
"I have always said I was born in the wrong decade. From the time I could remember, I have always enjoyed music that was popular 40+ years ago, from the Monkees, the Beatles, and of course Elvis Presley! I discovered my love for Elvis about 6 years ago when I saw a performance by a very well-know Elvis impersonator, Ryan Pelton. Ryan was so freakishly like the real thing that I thought that I had been transported back in time! After that, I started listening to Elvis’ music, watching his movies, and reading lots of books. It wasn’t long after that, that I had become not only a fan, but COMPLETELY fascinated with the King. My Elvis collection started with CDs, DVD, books and has grown to multiple cardboard stand-ups, bags, art, costumes, t-shirts, pretty much anything you can think of. I traveled to Graceland with my dad soon after my fascination started and was blown away. If you ever get a chance, Elvis fan or not, go to Graceland! I believe it is something everyone should do at least once in their life. I would give anything to have been able to see him perform live but all his recorded performances (and shows like LTA’s All the King’s Women) will have to do." -Tina Barry (LTA's own Box Office Manager)
