Three-Week Musical Production Camp!

Music and Lyrics by Elvis Presley
All Shook Up is a 2004 American jukebox musical with Elvis Presley music. The story is based on William Shakespeare’s 1602 play Twelfth Night.
It’s 1955, and into a square little town in a square little state rides a guitar-playing young man who changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy that’ll have you jumpin’ out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Jailhouse Rock,” and “Don’t Be Cruel.”
This camp will offer a unique theatrical opportunity to bring this famous production to life in YPT’s Blackbox Theatre. YPT’s Blackbox space offers an intimacy that you won’t find in larger theatres. This gives the actor a stronger sense of connection to the audience and teaches one’s body and voice to adjust a performance when playing to a smaller house. Every day of camp presents a new opportunity to build skills in acting, music and voice, movement, stagecraft, song interpretation, and improvisation. The camp culminates in live theater performances of this Broadway production.
