Scot Bruce and Mike Albert team up to bring you the most riveting tribute to the ‘King of Rock & Roll’ that you will ever see. Scot Bruce performs as Elvis, the way we remember him during his early career, followed by Mike Albert, who is superb as Elvis in his Vegas years. Together, they recreate the electrifying musical excitement of the King, in a live, biographical concert. This is one show guaranteed to get you ALL SHOOK UP! “ Songs will be announced from stage.

This program was supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.

8 Young Auditorium


S C O T B R U C E A S E LV I S Originally from the Pacific Northwest, where he was a radio personality and a drummer, Scot has lived in Los Angeles since 1990. While pursuing music and acting as a career (and having been a musician and big Elvis fan all of his life), he started doing a 1950’s era Elvis show as a way to survive the lean times. The result was a surprise to Scot… what was meant as a part-time “gig” to supplement his income, blossomed into a full time career! Because of his uncanny resemblance to the young “King” (and his ability to sing, strum a guitar, and swivel his hips), his live show has taken him across the U.S. and all over the world. As Elvis, he has appeared in music videos with Faith Hill and Sheryl Crow, and has been heard as the “Resident Elvis” with his pals “Mark and Brian” on their highly rated Los Angeles morning radio show. Scot has also appeared in recurring roles on the hit soap operas Days of Our Lives and The Bold and the Beautiful, a Pizza Hut commercial, the California Lottery “Elvis” ad campaign, and in several successful productions of Idols of the King, including the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, the Barter

Theatre in Virginia and the Alabama Shakespeare Festival in Montgomery. Recently, he had the honor of performing with the legendary Jordanaires (Elvis’ original backup singers). If you saw the True Hollywood Story: Elvis in Hollywood on E! Entertainment Network, that was Scot playing Elvis in the recreation scenes. He performs at Disneyland on a regular basis, and tours with the ‘Legends of Rock & Roll - Buddy, Roy & Elvis.’ Aside from ‘being Elvis’ Scot is a songwriter, and (whenever possible) he performs an acoustic guitar/harmonica solo act in local pubs and plays the drums with L.A. based rock-a-billy bands. TOP ELVIS IMPERSONATOR SCOT BRUCE HAS GOT IT GOING ON, HIS VOICE IS SO UNCANNILY LIKE THE KING’S YOU’LL THINK YOU’RE IN BLUE HAWAII...... HE HAS ALL THE SIGNATURE PRESLEY MOVES - THE INDEPENDENTLY ROTATING THIGHS, THE SWIVELING PELVIS, THE DROOPY BEDROOM EYES-DOWN TO A SCIENCE.” - The Tennessean, Nashville

A B O U T M I K E A L B E R T A N D T H E U LT I M AT E T R I B U T E Mike Albert’s “Ultimate Tribute” show has become known worldwide for the respectful portrayal of the late Elvis Presley. The show had its beginnings with Mike using singa-long tapes of Elvis’ hits. Mike won several major world “Elvis” contests, and demand for his shows resulted in putting together a seven piece Big “E” Band, to emulate the sound Elvis’ band had in the Vegas shows and on tour. An appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show and being featured in six music videos on the national show “A Current Affair”, with Maury Povich, further exposed audiences to Mike’s talent. The actual vocal groups that backed Elvis (the legendary Jordanaires and J.D. Sumner and the Stamps quartet) have toured across the U.S., Europe and as far as Australia and New Zealand with Mike’s show at many large conventions and theaters. Mike’s style and charisma and his ability to get the audience involved in the show have proved to be quite the crowd pleaser. Fairs, festivals, dinner shows and large car cruises have established a long-term relationship with Mike and his band that draws sold-out crowds year after year. Highlighting Mike’s career was an invitation to do the Miss Tennessee beauty pageant, with a full orchestra and choreographed dance routines, and a repeat invitation three years later. Mike’s powerful voice lends itself well to every type of Elvis’ music - 50’s, 60’s and 70’s rock and roll and love songs, as well as a very successful gospel/Christmas show. Since Elvis had so many hits, Mike makes it a point to keep the show fresh with an ever-changing song line-up! Special requests are often delivered to audiences who are “All Shook Up”!

D I R E C TO R ’ S N O T E S The Comedy of Errors best characterizes Shakespeare’s fascination with mistaken identity. Shakespeare often employs disguises and gender flip-flops as one of many devices to craft his stories but in The Comedy of Errors this technique is the spine of the play, the center where the characters, setting, and story originate. We can only speculate about Shakespeare’s attraction to mistaken identity but underneath every moment of hilarity in The Comedy of Errors is a person yearning for something or someone. In every instance where a character aches, Shakespeare concocts a game or comedic gag that eases the pain. He blends tragic situations with comedic resolutions. Charlie Chaplin said of Shakespeare,“[His] Laughter is the tonic, the relief, the surcease for pain.” Like many only children, I longed for a sibling so I invented one by telling people that I had an older brother in college. He became real and changed my identity. Oh, the inexplicable joy I felt because I had a brother! Years later, I told my directing teacher of my childhood charade; he responded by giving me a copy of The Comedy of Errors commenting, “I think someone else has played your game, too.” With each page, I quickly identified with two brothers searching for each other and the hilarity of deception became all too familiar. As each character failed to recognize one another, I smiled and thought of “my brother” and wondered if he would be able to recognize me after all of these years. Our identities, real or imagined, always seem to provide comedy as an antidote for the commonplace. – Ian Belknap

T H E AC T I N G C O M PA N Y ( c o n t .) This season, we present Shakespeare’s immortal classic Julius Caesar, running in repertory with The Comedy of Errors, produced in association with the Guthrie Theater. The company will be touring to 31 cities and towns in 20 states across the country and Canada. While on tour, we present master classes, student matinees and one-hour, performance-based workshops of Shakespeare for younger audiences. Our Learning Through Theater program, a weeklong artistic residency, is the centerpiece of our education program. Teaching artists involve students in all aspects of the plays being presented on our tour. They explore writing, communications, poetry, character development and other facets of theater before seeing the production and spending the day with our actors. The Acting Company is a TONY Honoree for Excellence in Theater and has also won the Obie Award, the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award, Citibank’s Excellence in Education Award and two Audelco Awards.
