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.

An up-and-coming Western indie rock band made up of five best friends from Arizona.
An up-and-coming Western indie rock band made up of five best friends from Arizona. They love the desert, their city, its people, and each other. They love long drives, early mornings, late nights, dive bars, carne asada Tacos at 3 am, dirty jokes, and asking each other what we think about things. They’re just as likely to get down on Simon & Garfunkel and Bob Dylan as they are Van Halen, and Kendrick Lamar. They love dogs, they love their van, they love playing together, and they love you – it’s true.
Performances held at the Ellen Eccles Theatre.
43 S Main St, Logan, UT

This funny and moving play is a tribute to resilience and hope—as it enlists you, the audience, to tell this heartfelt story.

Without William Shakespeare, we wouldn’t have the world’s most memorable plays— and without his friends, we wouldn’t know he wrote them. After the Bard’s death, his fellow actors realize that the plays they love are being muddled and even lost; they know they need to publish a collection of his plays. Thus, they launch a seemingly impossible mission to print “the book” of his plays and save his legacy.
