All Shook Up first sprang to life in 2004 in Chicago, USA. The popular jukebox musical soon moved to Broadway in 2005, hosted by The Palace Theatre. Packed with a whopping twenty-four Elvis Presley favourites, All Shook Up tells the story of Natalie (originally played by Jenn Gambatese), a small town mechanic who dreams of love and adventure. Set within a twenty-four hour period in the summer of 1955 and based loosely on the story of Twelfth Night (Shakespeare), all is about to be shaken up with the arrival of a mysterious stranger in town: the guitar playing, leather jacketed motorcyclist Chad (played by Cheyenne Jackson on Broadway). In addition to a successful stint on Broadway, All Shook Up has wowed audiences across America, the UK, South Korea, and the show continues to tour the world. The 2015 UK tour saw the show re branded as Love Me Tender, The well known, catchy musical numbers continue to make this show popular with both amateur and professional theatre companies alike.
