Kaleidoscope Theatre and the students at Drumheller Valley Secondary School are gearing up for opening night of 'All Shook Up'.
"It's sponsored by Kaleidoscope Theatre, but it's actually a high school show. It's kind of a way to get the school involved in some big productions in the future and to get kids to maybe want to get involved in Kaleidoscope," stated Becky Neuman, director of All Shook Up.
"We're having lots of fun, I have a great cast. There's some that have had some experience and there's a lot who haven't had any, but they are a great cast with lots of energy. We're having a great time," Neuman added.
All Shook Up is based on Elvis Presley's music, but has a detailed story line.
"If you are familiar with the Elvis Presley movies he made in the early 1960's, it's kind of like that. Elvis Presley is not a character in the play, the main character's name is Chad, but he's based on the Elvis Presley personality," Neuman explained.
This musical opens on November 29 and will run until December 4. All Shook Up runs nightly starting at 7:30.
"We started in September. I cast the main cast in June and then as soon as school started in the fall, we started rehearsals," Neuman mentioned."We hope everybody comes out to see it because it's going to be lots of fun."
So, how can Drumheller residents get tickets?
"It's sponsored by Kaleidoscope, so they can go on the Kaleidoscope website or they can phone 403-823-PLAY (7529). It's easy to go on the website and get tickets through there," outlined Neuman. "They will get assigned seating just like any other Kaleidoscope show."
