Harlequin Eastwood Theatre for Youth present All Shook Up.

Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley with a book by Joe Dipietro, best known for the Tony Award-winning musical Memphis, as well as for writing the book and lyrics for the long-running off-Broadway show (and much-loved Fringe favourite) I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change.

This musical comedy is based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, and takes us into the American mid-west in 1955. It tells the story of Natalie, who dreams of “hitting the road” and Chad, a rock ‘n’ roll loving biker, who stops at the town’s garage to have his bike repaired. Natalie, the mechanic, immediately falls for him.

Chad, a charismatic rebel, rebuffs her advances, but Natalie has other ideas, and disguises herself as a man, seeking to become Chad’s sidekick.

The show follows all the “will they won’t they” drama, set to a fabulous score full of wonderful Elvis songs. There are of course a few hilarious hiccups and surprises along the way, building to a fantastic finale.

*All Shook Up has recently been professionally presented and toured the UK as Love Me Tender.
