Stage show: It’s time to jump up and down in your blue suede shoes, fall in love and let yourself go.
The songs of Elvis will come to life in All Shook Up at the Wyndham Cultural Centre this week.
The show will be staged by the Werribee-based arts education group Dynamic Performers Australia.
The musical, inspired by Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, features Michael Butera and Madison Peake.
The two performers, who hail from Bundoora and West Foostcray respectively, said All Shook Up had a cast of 60 children and adults.
“It’s nice working with such a big group, I love kids – we’re like a family,” Peake said.
Butera said he was looking forward to performing the show in front of an audience.
“I feel it will be relatable to a lot of people, who would be very familiar with the songs already,” he said.
Butera said he was nothing like his character, who he described as “a bit self-centred”.
However, Peake does have something in common with her character, who works as a mechanic at her father’s car shop.
In real life, Peake works at her father’s car shop, All West Auto Parts in Sunshine.
“I know all about cars and getting dirty and greasy, it’s not as glamourous as it looks on stage,” she said.
All Shook Up will be performed Saturday, October 12 at 7.30pm and Sunday, October 13 at 2pm. Tickets: $30,
