Southwestern Set To Stage Performance Of ‘All Shook Up’
Southwestern High School’s production of the musical “All Shook Up” will be performed Thursday, March 12 to Saturday, March 14, 2020, at 7 p.m.
March is Music in Our Schools Month and the public is welcome to enjoy one Elvis Presley song after another as the Trojans weave together this coming-of-age story.
In a quiet, conservative town in the Midwest, a Roustabout (a delinquent without a permanent home) rides in on a motorcycle. He finds a weary, sleepy place filled with people constrained by pent-up emotions — wishing for love and contentment, but rarely expressing their feelings. The roustabout’s name is Chad and — true to his reputation — he decides to shake up the town. What unfolds is a funny, confused night of people falling in love, announcing their love, changing their minds, hiding their feelings and singing lots and lots of Elvis tunes.
The cast includes Rosie Hagel as Natalie Haller, Jackson Vanstrom as Chad, Max Hagel as Jim Haller, Jacqueline Bielata as Sylvia, Isabella Grijalva as Lorraine, Alex Spoon as Dennis, Hannah Swan-Leuze as Miss Sandra, Arianna Taylor as Mayor Matilda Hyde, Nick Crisafulli-Schenk as Sheriff Earl, Max Vaughn as Dean Hyde, Rachael Davis as Henrietta.
