The music of Elvis comes alive in All Shook Up. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, All Shook Up follows a small Midwestern town that is thrown into a frenzy with the arrival of Chad, a good-looking, motorcycle-riding roustabout, who rides from town to town with a guitar on his back, blue suede shoes on his feet, and a song in his heart. 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.

Please come prepared with two contrasting songs.
Children 10 and under only need one song
Please bring either sheet music for our pianist to play, or a recorded accompaniment (via phone or USB).

Anyone auditioning for a role above, please make an individual audition booking. If you are auditioning for a chorus role only, you must attend our group audition on Sunday June 30 at 1.30pm. Please make sure to book in for this.
