Winner of two Drama Desk awards, and a Theater World Award, "All Shook Up" is a sizzling summer musical that, starting on Thursday, Aug. 8, will bring Elvis' timeless tunes combined with a whole lot of humor to DeLand's historic Athens Theatre.
"All Shook Up, The Musical features an all local, Central Florida cast of more than 25 experienced actors from Flagler County, Volusia County and the Orlando/Sanford/Mount Dora area.
This 2004 American jukebox musical is based on William Shakespeare's play "Twelfth Night". Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley, the "King's" music forms the backdrop for the musical. The story is about a mysterious, leather-jacketed stranger who shakes up a small Midwestern town (a square little town in a square little state) during the 1950s. See what happens when a guitar-playing, motorcyclin' roustabout changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy that'll have you jumpin' in your blue suede shoes with such classics as "Heartbreak Hotel," "Jailhouse Rock," and "Don't Be Cruel."
The show opens at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 8 and runs through Aug. 18, at the Athens in Downtown DeLand.
Show times are 7:30 p.m. Aug. 8, 9 and 10 and Aug. 15, 16, and 17. Matinees will be at 2:30 p.m. Aug. 10 and 11 and Aug. 17 and 18.
