NDSS presents "All Shook Up"
Thursday, February 23rd, 2017
Nanaimo District Secondary School presents the musical comedy, All Shook Up. Performances will be held at The Port Theatre, 125 Front Street, Nanaimo on February 23 and 24 at 7 PM.
Originally produced on Broadway and based on William Shakespeare’s play, Twelfth Night, All Shook Up is a new musical comedy inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley and book by Joe Dipietro. The story takes place in the 1950s and is one of the most exciting musicals of this era since the very popular, Grease. A dreary, sleepy mid-western town in the US is awakened when Chad, a hip-swinging, guitar-playing drifter comes to town and livens up the atmosphere by bringing music and joy to its citizens through restoring an old, broken-down jukebox. Mayor Matilda, who has outlawed dancing, is threatened by Chad and what he represents as she vows to arrest him.
With mistaken identities, lovers who initially cross paths, but fail to meet, and unforgettable music, All Shook Up is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
