When it comes to Elvis impersonators, Donny Edwards is the king. He was chosen by Elvis Presley Enterprises to recreate The King’s Return to Tupelo Concert in front of 14,000 fans, a finalist on ABC’s The Next Big Thing, and featured in Texas Monthly, all of which makes the native Texan as close to the real deal as you can get. In Weatherford at Texas Opry Theater (319 York Av, 817-341-1000), Edwards will do his thing (and probably pass out some teddy bears to the young ladies in attendance). “One Night with Elvis” starts at 7pm.
