State Theatre presents the Broadway Musical "All Shook Up"

(New Brunswick, NJ) — To celebrate Elvis' 76th birthday, the State Theatre presents the national tour of the Broadway musical All Shook Up on Saturday, January 15, 2011 at 3pm and 8pm. With more than 24 Elvis hits performed with a live orchestra and singers, All Shook Up kick starts a chain reaction of romances and rebellion through the power of rock ‘n roll music! Joining the birthday festivities before the start of the 8pm performance will be Elvis impersonators and immediately following the show, free cake will be served in the downstairs theater lobby to all ticketed patrons. All Shook Up tickets range from $32-67.

Combining all time favorite Elvis hits with a whole new story full of hilarious twists and turns, All Shook Up is surefire fun for rock n roll rebels of all ages. It's Footloose, Grease, and Happy Days all rolled into one zany story. This isn't an Elvis tribute show… it's better! There's high energy dance numbers and it features more than 24 of The King's greatest hits like "Jailhouse Rock," "Heartbreak Hotel," "One Night With You," "That's All Right," "Don't Be Cruel," "A Little Less Conversation," "Burning Love," "Love Me Tender," "Teddy Bear," "Hound Dog," and more.

It's a square little town until a hip-swivelin', guitar-playin' roustabout kick starts this high energy retro musical that will have everyone jumpin' out of their blue suede shoes. A young mechanic named Natalie dreams of escaping her quiet Midwestern life. When a tall, handsome motorcycle ridin' stranger with blue-suede shoes and a guitar strapped to his back rides into town in search of a mechanic, Natalie's whole life changes. She falls instantly in love with the new stranger, but he won't give her the time of day. So Natalie disguises herself as "one of the guys" to get closer to him. But as Chad brings romance, rebellion and rock n roll into the town, he only has feelings for the shapely Miss Sandra who runs the local museum. Mistaken identities and outlandish who-loves-who mix-ups ensue and the town suddenly bursts to life and creates a feel-good story of crazy love triangles with laugh-out-loud comedy.
