St. Petersburg City Theatre announces their auditions for the musical All Shook Up. All Shook Up is a juke-box musical.In All Shook Up, 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. Loosely based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, this hip-swiveling, lip curling musical fantasy uses the music of Elvis Presley and will have you jumpin’ out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel, “Hound Dog”, “Jailhouse Rock”, and “Don’t be Cruel”. The production will be directed by Jamie Bierchen. Auditions will be held on November 29 and 30 at 7:00 p.m. at SPCT. Performances will be February 11 – 20.
