Riverdale Rising Stars Director of Artistic Programming Laurie Walton stages ALL SHOOK UP, which features choreography by Emily Walton and Laurie Berich, and musical direction by Justin Fischer. The design team includes Penny Margeotes (costumes), David Pentz (lighting), and Denise Eberly (sound).
ALL SHOOK UP, a musical comedy built around 26 songs popularized by Elvis Presley, premiered on Broadway in 2005, and has since become a favorite of high school, college, and regional theatres around the world. Tony Award-winning playwright Joe DiPietro (Memphis; I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change; Nice Work If You Can Get It) wrote the book for the musical, which is inspired by Shakespearean comedies like Twelfth Night.
