There has been a lot of talk lately about Halifax County Little Theatre’s latest project, “Elvis Has Left the Building.”

It has become such an obsession with some local fans that Elvis sightings are beginning to be reported in various parts of the county.

One report even has him posing for photos with admirers in South Boston.

Director Becky Donner would neither confirm nor deny that she has had recent contact with the biggest star in history, but the twinkle in her eye could be considered a dead giveaway.

Donner was willing to say that she has had some fine moments with the cast in rehearsal and that the opening date of Feb. 15 should be a rare treat for local audiences.

While not wanting to give away too much of the story, she did remark that, “With our talented group of actors, we will have Elvis in excess.” It seems that the mystery of what happens when “Elvis Has Left the Building” can only be discovered by purchasing a ticket at the Prizery.

In the meantime, HCLT has issued a challenge to all area residents.

As Elvis sightings are increasing, the legend is beginning to sound like a Bigfoot expedition.

They have made arrangements with local merchants for Elvis to drop by. If you should see him in any business, leave your name and contact information with the proprietor.

For every business that Elvis visits, HCLT will award some lucky customers a free ticket to the show through a drawing. In addition, any fans that can convince Elvis to pose for a picture with them can submit their picture to Halifax County Little Theatre’s Facebook page.

Winners will be notified after a drawing.

Performances are set for 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 15, 16, 21, 22, and 23. One matinee is set for 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 17. HCLT wants all Elvis fans to be on the lookout.

Help solve the mystery of Elvis’ whereabouts or simply buy a ticket for a night of comedy and a glimpse of the King as you have never seen him.

Tickets are now on sale at the Prizery (572-8339) or by going to http://www.hclt.org.
