Are you ‘Lonesome Tonight’? Are you tired of ‘Suspicious Minds’? Do you prefer ‘A Little Less Conversation’ and a bit more ‘Jailhouse Rock’? If so, get your ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ to Ard Scoil na Trionoide’s staging of the smash hit musical ALL SHOOK UP next week.

‘All Shook Up’ is a musical inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley. Into a square little town rides a guitar-playing roustabout who changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swivelling, lip-curling musical fantasy.

Somewhere in Kildare in the 1950’s, Chad (Conor Martin), a guitar-playing roustabout is being released from prison.

In a nearby dreary little town, Natalie (Katie Kavanagh), a young mechanic, is dreaming of love and adventure. She yearns for one true love to take her away. The monotony of the town is broken by Chad, riding into town. Chad is in need of a mechanic and he’s introduced to Natalie, who is instantly smitten.
Chad is shocked that excitement is outlawed under the Mayor’s strict rules: no loud music and no indecent behaviour. Chad, incensed, promises to breathe some life into this sad, little town.
Will true love prevail? Will the power of music win the day? Will this small town in Kildare survive getting ALL SHOOK UP?

Tickets are €7 and there are still some available – though hurry as they are selling fast! Doors open 7.30pm and show starts at 8pm from Wednesday 21st – Saturday 24th March 2012.

In order to promote the musical, the cast performed their very own ‘flashmob’ on Thursday in front of many dismayed students. Click here to see how it happened.
