Henry Ford II gets All Shook Up this weekend

Henry Ford II presents Elvis Presley-based musical this weekend

Combining all-time favorite Elvis Presley songs with a surefire rock’n’roll story, ALL SHOOK UP, the musical that took Broadway by storm, will ride into the Henry Ford II High School Performing Arts Center December 6-9, 2012. 

An uproarious new musical comedy featuring the unforgettable hits of Elvis Presley, ALL SHOOK UP is loosely based on William Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night", and tells the story of a guitar playing roustabout, Chad, who rides into a struggling square Midwest town and changes it forever with the power of love and rock-and-roll. This whacky ‘50s styled musical features 24 Presley classic hit songs including "Heartbreak Hotel", "Burning Love", "Jailhouse Rock", "Blue Suede Shoes", "It's Now or Never", "Don't Be Cruel" and "Fools Rush In," ALL SHOOK UP is clever, fresh fun for all ages.

The cast of 40 is led by Director-Choreographer Mitchell A. Finke, Artistic and Technical Director Karen Trivelloni, Vocal Director Chancellor Wyman, Scenic Engineer Tom Lobkovich, and a team of student stage managers.  

After three months of hard work for everyone involved, the crew, orchestra, cast, directors, and parent volunteers are ready to show off this well-tuned hot-rod musical to the community!  From the carefully constructed sets, the
cast’s top notch dancing and singing, and the edgy professional sounding
orchestra, the Henry Ford II Theatre Department invites you to have a fun
evening of theater and rock’n’roll and wishes to thank you in advance for your
patronage.  We guarantee to have your entire family jumpin’ out of their blue suede shoes!

Tickets may be purchased online at ShowTix4U.com for $12.00 or at the door. Performances are December 6-8 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, December 9th at 2:00 p.m. Henry Ford II Performing Arts Center is located at 11911 Clinton River Road, Sterling Heights, MI 48313.
