The Legend of Georgia McBride

By Matthew Lopez

Sponsored by Sue and Frank Guarino

June 7 – June 30

The Circuit Playhouse

He’s young, he’s broke, his landlord’s knocking at the door, and he’s just found out his wife is going to have a baby. To make matters even more desperate, Casey is fired from his gig as an Elvis impersonator in a run-down, small-town Florida bar. When the bar owner brings in a B-level drag show to replace his act, Casey finds that he has a whole lot to learn about show business — and himself.
