"ALL SHOOK UP" THE MUSICAL

This Broadway hit show tells the story of a square little town that gets shaken up when a guitar-playing stranger rides through

He changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy that’ll have you jumpin’ out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel”, “Jailhouse Rock” and “Don’t Be Cruel”

Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley
