There’s going to be a lot of Elvis Presley music at Verona High School this Saturday night. All Shook Up is a musical that weaves the songs of the great rocker into a story modeled on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night (think lots of mistaken identity and uptight characters that get their comeuppance).
The cast includes some of your favorite VHS thespians–Paul Salierno , Gabby Campos, Filip Babalievsky, Kelsey Mitchell, Maura Cuddihy, Rachel Held, Jillian Lanese, Troy Locatell and
Alex Karpinski–and a great backup band–Wes Ostrander,Evan Yee,Austin Yee, Frances Metzger, Laura Williams, Skyler Fortgang, Ryan Lavoie, Andrew Capuano, Isaac Rubins and Ella Yarmo-Gray. Cara McGinley is the student director.
The show is Saturday, May 5, and the performances are at 4 and 8 p.m. Tickets are just $5.
Here’s a little preview from Monday’s rehearsal.
