Common Thread Presents “The Legend of Georgia McBride” in a Staged Reading

by | Jul 8, 2024

Come to a heartfelt, staged reading of “The Legend of Georgia McBride,” under the direction of Ann Marie Costa on July 12 and 13 at 7:30 p.m. in the Barber Theatre on Davidson’s campus

In “The Legend of Georgia McBride,” Casey is an Elvis impersonator struggling to make a living in a Panama City Beach dive bar. He’s young, broke, behind on rent, and now his wife is pregnant. To make matters worse, Casey gets fired, losing his gig to a second-rate drag show.

Before “the King” leaves the building, however, a twist of fate and a makeover by some fabulous new friends provide Casey a second chance to make it in showbiz. It’s a wildly entertaining story about friendship, acceptance, and finding a family in the unlikeliest of places.

Common Thread is excited to collaborate with local drag performers to offer a post-show drag show directly after the reading!  Stay tuned for more info about the entertainers for each evening…
