Warner Stage Company to Present ALL SHOOK UP, Begin. 5/3
The Warner Stage Company's Main Stage Musical Season continues May 3rd with the opening night of All Shook Up.
It's 1955, and into a square little town in a square little state rides a guitar-playing roustabout, Chad (Ian Diedrich), who changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy that'll have you jumpin' out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as "Heartbreak Hotel," "Jailhouse Rock," and "Don't Be Cruel." Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley and based off of the book by Joe DiPietro.
The Warner Stage Company production of All Shook Up is directed and choreographed by Sharon A. Wilcox with Music Director Aaron J. Bunel. Performances are Saturday, May 3 & 10 at 8 pm, Sunday May 4 & 11 at 2 pm and Friday, May 9 at 8 pm. Tickets are $18-26 and can be purchased by calling the Warner Box Office at 860-489-7180 or online at www.warnertheatre.org
Built by Warner Brothers Studios and opened in 1931 as a movie palace (1,772 seats), the Warner Theatre was described then as "Connecticut's Most Beautiful Theatre." Damaged extensively in a flood, the Warner was slated for demolition in the early 1980s until the non-profit Northwest Connecticut Association for the Arts (NCAA) was founded and purchased the theatre. The Warner reopened as a performing arts center in 1983, and restoration of the main lobbies and auditorium was completed in November 2002. In 2008, the new 50,000 square foot Carole and Ray Neag Performing Arts Center, which houses a 300 seat studio theatre, 200 seat restaurant and expansive school for the arts, was completed. Today, the Warner is in operation year-round with more than 160 performances and 100,000 patrons passing through its doors each season. Over 10,000 students, pre K-adult, participate in arts education programs and classes. Together, with the support of the community, the Warner has raised close to $17 million to revitalize its facilities. NCAA's mission is to preserve the Warner Theatre as an historic landmark, enhance its reputation as a center of artistic excellence and a focal point of community involvement, and satisfy the diverse cultural needs of the region.
