MORE ABOUT THE SHOW

Set to the hits of the King of Rock and Roll himself, Elvis Presley, this musical will have you dancing in your “Blue Suede Shoes” all night long. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, the music is all Elvis, and the result is a night of hilarious and enchanting 1950s fun. When Chad, the mysterious hip-swiveling roustabout arrives in town, suddenly everyone’s lip-curling and all shook up with secrets, music and love.

All Shook Up is a jukebox musical built around a number of songs made famous by Elvis Presley; but it is NOT a biographical revue. The story is inspired by William Shakespeare’s play Twelfth Night.Set in 1955 somewhere in middle America, things get “all shook up” when the mysterious leather-jacketed, guitar-playing Chad rolls into town to get his bike repaired. Tomboy Natalie falls head over heels for Chad and soon most everybody is falling in love with someone who loves somebody else. Through the progression of romantic yearnings, deception and disguise, the town discovers the magic of romance and the power of rock n’ roll. And of course, all the couples get sorted out in time for the finale.

All Shook Up made its Broadway debut in 2005, and among the 24 songs featured in the score are classics like “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Love Me Tender,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” and the title tune.  The show is fast-paced and upbeat, and the result is a night of hilarious and enchanting 1950s fun.
