PREVIEW: Elvis Las Vegas 1969

Anscombe Production Associates (APA) present a concert version of their production Elvis Las Vegas 1969 for the 2nd Henfield Haven Anniversary Concert.

Brighton born and Henfield schooled producer, Tim Anscombe will produce the show. Tim trained as a classical tenor before starting his own successful production company based in Brighton APA. His many production credits include Privates on Parade at the Brighton Theatre Royal and the legendary double act Hinge and Bracket.

The artists that appeared in his recent musical production of ‘Elvis Las Vegas 1969’ in Gravesend have agreed to perform for the Henfield Haven 2nd Anniversary Concert at The Henfield Hall.

In the full stage show, act two of the musical is a reproduction of the actual concert given on July 31, 1969 in Las Vegas. Given that the Henfield stage is not quite big enough to contain the set and structures used in the full production, APA have devised a tribute show which captures the very best of the musical numbers.

For the first half of the Henfield show they have added some older Elvis Presley favourites from 1954 onwards for those lovers of the great man. Songs like That’s Alright Mama, I Forgot To Remember to Forget, I Beg Of You, I Need Your Love Tonight and a few other Memphis style memories.

The second half of the concert will be the concert as performed in Las Vegas in 1969, full of songs specially chosen by both Presley and his manager Tom Parker to woo audiences back into Elvis’s live shows. Are You Lonesome TonightWords, Falling in Love With You, Suspicious Minds, Love Me Tender, In the Ghetto and many more.

40 Year after his untimely death Elvis Presley remains as popular today with young audiences as with those fortunate enough to have grown up with this amazing performer.

Elvis impersonator Scott Elvis will play the role of Elvis in Henfield Hall. He is an amazing performer, his Presley timing and rock and roll aura is amazing.
