Presley turned 14 on January 8 (Elvis’s birthday). She is thrilled to be performing in her second CBT production! (She debuted in South Pacific last spring.) Presley is a third generation performer. She is performing in honor of her paternal grandparents who met singing on WNOX in 1950. Presley has studied piano for nine years and voice for seven. Teaching herself guitar, she has exhibited an uncanny ability to write songs since she was four. Rarely has she passed up an opportunity to perform: talent shows, modern dance recitals, lip sync competition (placing 3rd, 4th and 2nd) and dance team at Bearden Middle School and is now attending West High School. She has also appeared in Knoxville Opera Company’s “Lucia di Lammermoor” and “I Puritani”. Presley is profoundly grateful to God for her talent, to CBT for this opportunity to be a part of one of the finest theatre experiences in the country and to her Mom and Dad for their enthusiastic support.
