NATICK – Natick High Theatre Company will stage three performances of the musical All Shook Up in April.
All Shook Up, the musical uses music inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley paired with the book (plot and dialogue) by Joe Dipietoro.
The plot borrows loosely from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. A stranger, a guitar slinging roustabout comes to town somewhere in the midwest during the summer of 1955. The town he enters is full of people who are in a sense depressed and/or restricted, afraid to risk and afraid to grow. The town has lost its sense of joy and openness.
The roustabout introduces a new way to see and experience the world, for a moment the townsfolk’s outlook is brightened. Unfortunately not everyone wants the town to change or welcomes an outsider’s ideas. How will our characters find love, joy, and a sense of fulfillment in a town that is judgmental and afraid?
The musical is a story about self discovery, love, and acceptance with some comic mishaps, and a lot of musical energy mixed in.
Shows are Friday, April 29 at 7:30 p.m.and Saturday, April 30 at 2 and 7:30 p.m.
Show are both in person at the high school auditorium and live streamed performance.
Tickets are $15 and may be here.
