High school musical set to shake it up Elvis style

THE King of Rock and Roll is still very much alive within the walls of Warwick High School as the performing arts students gear up for one helluva show.

All Shook Up is this year's full school musical and takes the audience on a journey through a lyrical wilderness of love, heartbreak and change - all the while humming along to a collaboration of Elvis classics.

With 73 cast members and three-day rehearsal weeks including a full day rehearsal every Sunday, All Shook Up is a musical you won't want to miss.

Lead character, Lindsey Marstella said the music would whisk the audience into the story being played out on stage.

"Natalie is a grease monkey and in her town they're not allowed to have loud music and then a roustabout comes along and changes that and makes everybody fall in love with music," Lindsey said.

Actor Samuel Harrison said the production would suit all ages.

"I think the older generation will find it refreshing to see younger ones involved with older music," he said.

Director Carolyn Foster described the show as "spectacular".

"They are a super talented bunch of kids and it's been a really exciting process."

The musical will be performed in the Warwick Town Hall on May 9-11.

Tickets are available from the WSHS office, $10 for students and $15 for adults.
