All Shook Up at Market House Theatre
Songs of Elvis Presley
Book by Joe Dipietro
It’s summer 1955. In the middle of a square state ... ln the middle of a square decade ... ln a square little town ... Natalie pumps gas at her father's filling station and dreams of riding off on her motorbike to find the man who will change her life. Who is not Dennis, her best friend and secret admirer. Unable to tell Natalie his true feelings, Dennis heads to Sylvia's Honky-Tonk, where the townsfolk, black and white, gather to lament the grayness of their lives. Suddenly, the sound of a motorcycle cuts through the air, as Chad, a mysterious stranger, appears on the horizon. When Chad stops in town to get his bike fixed, Natalie is immediately smitten. Sizing up the dreariness of the town, Chad electrifies and transforms a broken-down jukebox with a wave of his bare hands, infecting everyone with the rebellious spirit of rock and roll music. Horrified by the wild celebration, prim and proper Mayor Matilda Hyde arrives on the scene to restore order. Everybody in town is in the grip of something powerful and new. All Shook Up is a musical comedy built around the songs made famous by Elvis Presley. 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 of course the title tune.
