‘All Shook Up’ debuts April 12 at Dragonfly Cinema

Paradise Theatre of Gig Harbor has relocated its productions to venue’s upstairs location

PORT ORCHARD — Paradise Theatre debuts its production of “All Shook Up” Friday, April 12 through Saturday, May 4 at a new location — upstairs above the Dragonfly Theatre in Port Orchard.

The theater group has moved its productions to Port Orchard after efforts to find a new location in its home at Gig Harbor.

“All Shook Up” is a new musical comedy built around a number of songs made famous by Elvis Presley. It takes place in 1955, somewhere in middle America, where one girl’s dream and a surprise visit from a mysterious leather-jacketed, guitar-playing stranger helps a small town discover the magic of romance and the power of rock and roll.

Among the 24 songs featured in the score are classics such as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Love Me Tender,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” and the title tune.

The musical is performed in two acts with one intermission and the running time is 2 1/2 hours.

The performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturdays. Ticket prices are $25 for adults, $20 for military and seniors 65 and older, and $10 for students. No children younger than age 2 will be admitted. All patrons must occupy a seat.

Organizers said opening night will be celebrated with wine and cheese at 7 p.m.

Dragonfly Cinema is at 820 Bay St. in Port Orchard. For more information, call 253-851-PLAY.
