Among the 24 songs featured in the score are classics like "Heartbreak Hotel," "Love Me Tender," "Don't Be Cruel," "Can't Help Falling in Love," and of course the title tune. Directed by Keenah Armitage, choreographed by Kiira Schmidt and music directed by Nissa Kahle. Feb. 1-2 & 8-9 at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m.
