11 Oct Get ready to be “All Shook Up”
DGS students are presenting ‘All Shook Up’ a 2004 American jukebox musical of Elvis Presley’ music.
It takes place in 1955, somewhere in middle America, where one girl’s dream and a surprise visit from a mysterious leather-jacketed, guitar-playing stranger help a small town to discover the magic of romance and the power of rock & roll.
All Shook Up characters include Natalie (played by Hazel Williams, 6th yr), Dennis (Max Valentine, 2nd yr), Jim Haller (Osgar Sullivan, 4th yr), Sylvia (Roisin Crowe, 4th yr), Lorraine (Caragh O’Reilly, 6th yr), Chad (Aaron Tham, 4th yr), Mayor Matilda Hyde (Emma Graham, 4th yr), Dean Hyde (Richard Dunne, 5th yr), Sheriff Earl (Tadhg Coleman, 4th yr), and Miss Dandra (Ayesha Murphy-Jallali, 4th yr). A strong troupe of aspiring actors, singers, dancers and musicians take to the stage in this production directed by Mrs O’Connor-Moneley.
The choreography has been led by Ms O’Reilly, Ms Verdes and Ms R. Matthews. All Shook Up will feature scenic design and construction by Mr. Keegan. Photographs will be taken by Martin O’Connor.
This wonderful musical features classics such as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Burning Love,” “Love Me Tender,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “A Little Less Conversation,” “Hound Dog,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” and of course, “All Shook Up.”
The performance will take place in the Finnamore Hall, Dundalk Grammar School multi-purpose hall, on Wednesday 24th, Thursday 25th and Friday 26th October at 7.30pm sharp.
Tickets priced €15 for adults, €10 for OAP’s and €8 for children can be booked through the school office at 042 933 44 59.
Considering the energy that has been put into the rehearsals, this is a production worth looking forward to!
