It’s December 20th, 1970, and Elvis Presley has disappeared. No one, not even his wily manager, “The Colonel”, knows of his whereabouts. But the Colonel is all shook up because he has racked up a secret debt — and with the King himself missing, the only way to pay it off is to find an Elvis impersonator within 24 hours. Hijinks ensue as the Colonel takes desperate measures to replace a man who is irreplaceable, all while keeping the prying eyes of a nosy reporter at bay and figuring out what happened to the real Elvis.
Eloise Vanlandingham is running for Congress and a small gathering for potential donors is planned by Nigel, her less-than-scrupulous campaign manager, and her husband Ralph. Just before the first guests arrive Harold, Ralph’s college roommate, shows up at the front door with a problem: he’s driving around town with a dead body in his van and he doesn’t know what to do with it. The body arrives in the house just as the first guests arrive. What can they do? They dress the body up like a guest and call him Jimmy.
“No Body Like Jimmy” is a fast-paced farce about politics and about a dead body being the life of the party
