If you choose to purchase a virtual ticket to The Legend of Georgia McBride, not only will you get to experience this joyful show, but you will be helping keep ATC resilient in weathering this challenge and come back strong in the autumn.
A big-hearted, FIERCE, music-filled comedy. A theatrical cornucopia of camp, country music, drag, domestic dilemmas, and larger-than-life divas awaits you! Casey is an Elvis impersonator with everything going for him, including a flashy sequin jumpsuit. But just like that he loses his gig, rent is overdue and his wife announces a baby on the way. So when Elvis leaves the building and a drag show moves in, “The King” transforms into an all-out queen with the help of some new friends who become the second family Casey never saw coming. With snappy zingers and dance-worthy numbers, this wildly entertaining story will challenge your assumptions with extraordinary humor and depth. A valentine to the drag queens who helped mentor the playwright through his own coming out as gay while growing up in Florida, ATC is thrilled to bring you this light and fizzy comedy that’s as sweet as it is hilarious.

Fun Fact! Drag artists, like the character you will see in The Legend of Georgia McBride, often work primarily for tips. Our creative team has worked hard to create an environment that allows you a glimpse into that world. If this excites you, consider bringing some cash to show the performers how much you appreciate their skills! But more importantly, sit back, have a good time and give them your applause and appreciation. That is what they are really here for.
