Winter 2023...

Into a square little town in a square little state rides a rockin' roustabout with a love for shaking things up.

This show endures past the time period in which it is set. Its approach to gender, to sexuality, to racism is what makes it timeless (this is based off Shakespeare, mind you!). Hidden behind a vibrant score and 50s-era shellac is a deep message: being who we are and loving who we love shouldn't be a crime.

-Brighton Horan,

Director/Choreographer for All Shook Up
