All Shook Up
Featuring the Music of Elvis Presley
The year is 1955 and into a square little town in a square little state rides a guitar-playing roustabout named Chad. He’s dismayed to learn that excitement is outlawed in the town under the Mayor's strict rules: no loud music, no indecent behavior. He promises to breathe some life into this sad, little town, and he starts by touching a broken-down jukebox and making it immediately come to life. A local mechanic, Natalie, falls in love with Chad, but is not getting the attention she wants from him, so she resorts to trying to gain his friendship through unusual means.
Find out if Chad can save the town from the Mayor’s desire for dullness, and see how Natalie tries to chase down Chad in the hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy All Shook Up, featuring the legendary songs of Elvis Presley.
