Loosely based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, All Shook Up uses the music of Elvis Presley to take the audience on a hip-swiveling musical fantasy. It takes place in 1955, somewhere in middle America, where one girl's dream and a surprise visit from a mysterious leather-jacketed, guitar-playing stranger help a small town to discover the magic of romance and the power of rock & roll. 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.”

Aspire PAC’s production of All Shook Up is directed by Benjamin Yates and features musical direction by Rich Lovallo and choreography by Alyssa Ross. Cheryl Wilbur serves as Production Manager and Katelyn Bollinger is Stage Manager.
