The 'King' is Back as Elvis Tribute Artist Doug Church Performs at Broadway Theatre of Pitman 11/29

Elvis Tribute Artist Doug Church shakes it on November 29 at 4:00 pm at the Broadway Theatre of Pitman.  

Doug Church began his Elvis career in the U.S. Air Force in 1983. He collected 11 first place trophies in only four years for his well-developed likeness to Elvis, as well as other categories ranging from best male vocalist to best comedic performance.

Doug has performed in exotic locations such as Bangkok, Hong Kong, Aruba, The Bahamas, Moscow, France, The United Kingdom and Denmark. In 1999, Doug starred in and performed soundtrack vocals for the award winning documentary film Almost Elvis.

It may be hard to imagine how anyone could possibly duplicate 70 different voice personalities with perfection, but Doug Church can. He has entertained audiences for 19 years, leaving them totally mesmerized by one of those voices in particular - the one and only Elvis Presley!

Originally opened in May 1926, the Broadway operated as a fully equipped movie and vaudeville theater with 1,090 seats, including the balcony and eight boxes. The opulent New Jersey theatre was created in a French Revival motif by the Philadelphia firm of Eberhard, Magaziner, and Harris.

Two crystal chandeliers light the house and inner lobby of the Broadway. And, a great deal of the original cast plaster detail remains intact today with the original molds still on the premises. A small orchestra pit, four private dressing rooms, a common room, two bathrooms, and a pipe organ blower room in the basement can also be found.

The Broadway Theatre of Pitman still has its original 3/8 Kimball theatre pipe organ - a unique instrument for its size. The Southern Jersey Theatre Organ Society has restored the Kimball to full concert status.

The Theatre was purchased at a sheriff's sale in February 2006 by Peter Slack. In addition, on September 23 of that year, the Greater Pitman Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with Heritage Foundation, Inc., helped reopen the theatre doors with the Bring Back Broadway Gala, a once-in-a-lifetime, black-tie optional gala to celebrate the Broadway Theatre of Pitman's rebirth as the pride of Pitman.
