There’s a hip-shaking earthquake coming to Abingdon in 2020

The music of Elvis Presley comes alive in All Shook Up and we’re bring it to the stage of the Amey Theatre in Spring 2020.

Inspired by Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, All Shook Up takes us to a small Midwestern town that is thrown into a frenzy with the arrival of Chad, fresh out of prison, a good-looking, motorcycle-riding roustabout, who travels the open roads with a guitar on his back, blue suede shoes on his feet, and a song in his heart.

Chad brings the town to its feet.

Repressed by their conservative mayor, the town begins to come alive once more under Chad’s influence. Lovers meet, woo, pursue, and more, all in one zany night that will change the town forever.

All Shook Up is a rocking, heartwarming tale about following dreams, opening up to love, and the power of music, featuring a whole host of hit songs from the Elvis songbook, including Jailhouse Rock, Heartbreak Hotel, Love Me Tender, Blue Suede Shoes, A Little Less Conversation, and many more.
