Inverness, FL -- Get out your blue suede shoes this weekend. The king is back in town, in a manner of speaking.
60 years ago, in July of 1961, Elvis Presley arrived in hot, humid Florida to film his ninth movie, "Follow that Dream." For the next six weeks, sleepy little Citrus County hosted actors, crew members, extras, star-struck fans, and of course, Elvis Presley himself.
Now, nearly 50 years later, the original stage production "When Elvis Came to Town" is being performed. The play/musical is staged in the historic 1912 Citrus County Courthouse. This is also where Elvis filmed the climactic courthouse scene in the movie. This re-enactment is based on hours of taped interviews and the memories of original cast members, extras, and townspeople.
