July 14--The Sonnentag Theatre at the IceHouse will kick off its 67th season with the music of Elvis.

Set in a small Midwestern town in 1955, the plot is about Chad, a hunky biker who hits town, attracts the attention of local tomboyish grease monkey Natalie, and spreads magic and romance and the transformative power of rock 'n' roll.

The show, which open opens Friday at the theater 1100 N. Unser St. in Mount Dora, runs through Aug. 3.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays; 8 p.m. Fridays and Aug. 2; and 2 p.m. Sundays and Saturday, and July 26.
