Fairland High School presents ‘All Shook Up’

May 8, 2019

PROCTORVILLE — Students from Fairland High School will offer the Proctorville/Huntington areas a different way to think about the age of leather jackets and rock and roll with their presentation of “All Shook Up,” an announcement made by Freddie Gershon, a CEO of Music Theater International (TRW) said.

The show features twenty students, aged fifteen to eighteen, and is scheduled to premiere at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 11.

“During weekly rehearsal, the students have collaborated on gaining a new perspective on the morals and the ethical issues these stories present. We think they deserve a standing ovation from the community for all their work,” says Gershon. “TRW would like to join the creators of ‘All Shook Up’ in applauding the unique ways that each student has contributed to the show, from performing to designing props, lights and scenery to assistant directing and working backstage,” he adds.

This year, the musical has 20 students involved. Tryouts began in October and the first singing rehearsal was in November. Students have spent more than a thousand hours on this show. The musical features 20 of Elvis’ most popular songs over a two-hour time span. Students have worked on stage crew, painting backdrops, singing and acting for five months and are now ready to present their hard work to the public.

Fairland High School will present the musical at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, May 11.

There will also be a show at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 12 at the Fairland High School Cafetorium.

Tickets are $8, kids/students $5 (kids under 5 are free) and are available at the Door.

On May 12 (Mother’s Day), moms get in for $4. A small number of tables will also be available each night for $40.
