    This is a totally original musical called HELLS REBELLION! It is a massive musical with every style of music genre,

    The first half is mainly child-teen actors/esses! Ages vary (4-17)
    There is also 32 adults

    Then the second half is all adults! Age 18 - ??

    : Of any age!
    Firstly we need a group of basic band musicians.

    we need to put together an Ochestral group. This is set on being Drogheda's ochestra and will hopefully continue beyond this musical! (Maybe just a 16 piece to start with)

    The behind the scenes people are the stage desigers, the make-up artists, the riggers (For the microphones, ect...) + various other jobs!:)

    This is going to be hard to sync it all together, but it is going to be so enjoyable! :D
    Right, SLANIO!

    All Shook Up is a new musical comedy built around a number of songs made famous by Elvis Presley. It's NOT a biographical revue. 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 help a small town to discover the magic of romance and the power of rock & roll. Among the 24 songs featured in the score are classics like "Heartbreak Hotel," "Love Me Tender," "Don't Be Cruel," "Can't Help Falling in Love," and of course the title tune. This couldn't be easier... ALL SHOOK UP 24th -28th April
