All Shook up

September 16 - October 11, 2009

All Shook Up mixes a little bit of Shakespeare with a whole lot of The King, and guarantees that your entire family will be jumpin' out of their blue suede shoes! The book by Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change) sets the action in Smalltown, USA circa 1955. It tells a sweet and comical story of what happens when "a rolling roustabout with a song in his soul and an eye for the ladies" rambles into town on his motorcycle, guitar slung over the leather jacket on his back. Playhouse audience favorite Sally Struthers (Mayor Matilda Hyde) is joined by Todd DuBail (Chad) along with Jen Cody (Natalie), fresh from Broadway's Shrek, and Tony Award-Winner Cady Huffman (Miss Sandra). All Shook Up is not a show about Elvis, but definitely is a tribute to his legend and his music, and uses the songs he made famous to give insight into the madness of falling in love. C'mon everybody! You can't help falling in love with All Shook Up. Put on your blue suede shoes, grab your teddy bear and follow that dream to The Ogunquit Playhouse! (Running time: 2:30 with one 15 minute intermission)
