The King is in the house.

The infamous Danny Vernon as Elvis Presley performs live at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 22, at the Auburn Avenue Theater, 10 Auburn Ave.

“An Inspirational Christmas with Elvis” matinee was added after the 7:30 p.m. show the same day was sold out.

From a very young age, Vernon has been bopping along to Elvis hits. An accomplished musician with his own nationally played album, Vernon strove to create a show that would illustrate his respect and support of the 20th century icon. Vernon is sure to cover the entire span of Elvis’ career, from the recklessly abandoned hillbilly cat of the ’50s, the sleek ’60s and the sexy ’70s jumpsuit era.

Vernon’s Elvis Presley is right at home at the Ave.

Elvis has inspired numerous impersonators, tribute shows and other cultural memorials. The King has been portrayed on stage in 37 different plays and musicals, musicians have written more than 10 songs about or pertaining to Elvis and 54 different actors have played him on film.

Tickets are $25 regular; $22 students and seniors. Call Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation at 253-931-3043 or online at auburnwa.gov/arts.
