Performing Arts campers are “All Shook Up” as they rehearse for upcoming performances of the musical, based on the 1957 hit Elvis Presley song of the same name. “All Shook Up, Jr.” is this year’s production by kids participating in the Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh’s Performing Arts Camp, a Philip Chosky Performing Arts Program.
“‘All Shook Up,’ the musical, is like a love letter to Elvis,” says director Delilah Picart. “His music is so monumental that a lot of our kids, even the 8-year-olds, know the songs already!”
The musical, which premiered on Broadway in 2005, is based on William Shakespeare’s play “Twelfth Night.” Picart says, “As a nod to Shakespeare, we’re having girls play some of the male roles. They’re very impressive.”
The energetic show is full of recognizable music and fun choreography by JCC dance director Kathy Wayne and her son, Davis Wayne.
Performances will be held in the Katz Theatre, JCC Robinson Building, 5738 Darlington Road, as follows: Wednesday, July 12, 7 p.m.; Thursday, July 13, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.; and Friday, July 14 at 2 p.m.
Call 412-339-5414 for tickets. Tickets are available in advance at the Center fit Desk, lower level, Kaufmann Building, and at the door, 30 minutes before the show. General admission is $10 and $7 for students and seniors.
