Photo Flash: Flat Rock Playhouse Gets Grooving with ALL SHOOK UP
Celebrate hit songs made famous by Elvis Presley at the Flat Rock Playhouse in the upcoming production, All Shook Up! A famous Broadway musical hit, All Shook Up combines the hilarity of Shakespearean comedies, such as A Midsummer Night's Dream, with the rock & roll music of Elvis Presley. In a musical presentation akin to Godspell and Footloose, this jukebox musical tells the story of a small-town girl with big dreams, a stick-in-the-mud mayor who has squashed any fun in her town, and the surprise visit of a leather-jacketed, guitar-playing, hip-swinging stranger. Experience the magic of rock & roll, gospel, romance, mistaken identities alongside Broadway caliber musical numbers and hits such as, "Love Me Tender," "Heartbreak Hotel," "Can't Help Falling In Love". Running this July 26th - August 18th, this is is a show you won't want to miss.
