All Shook Up hits Crown Theatre in July…

Take a wild and fabulous ride back to the golden era of Rock ‘n’ Roll, featuring all the hits of ELVIS ® 

A classic tale of young love and forbidden romance, inspired by the story of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, All Shook Up takes place in 1955 America, in a small Midwestern town which is quickly thrown into a frenzy with the arrival of Chad, a good-looking, motorcycle-riding roustabout, who rides from town to town – guitar on his back, blue suede shoes on his feet and a song in his heart. 

The town, repressed by their conservative Mayor, begins to come alive again under Chad’s influence and charisma. Lovers meet, woo and pursue all in one outlandish night that will change the town and its people forever. It also features three weddings …no funerals. 

Be entertained by some of our country’s s most talented performers, including WAAPA alumni Mia Simonette, playing the role of Natalie Haller (Chad’s love interest), Mia recently performed to acclaim in The West Australian Opera’s 2023 season of Into the Woods.
