Put on your Blue Suede Shoes and C'mon Everybody Get All Shook Up!



DLHS is proud to present a summer musical: "All Shook Up".  This production is a fund-raiser for the high school choral program and all involved (adult and students alike) are donating their time.

Based on the music of Elvis Presley and William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, this musical uses such Elvis classics as Hound Dog and Heartbreak Hotel, to take the audience on a delightful, funny trip through mistaken identities and star-crossed love to the perfect ending of Burning Love.

 Performances are set for July 23, 25, 30, 31 and Aug. 1 at 7:30 p.m., with a Sunday matinee at 3 p.m. on July 26.  All shows will take place in the George Simson Auditorium at the Detroit Lakes Middle School.

Tickets are $15.00 for adults and $10.00 for students ages 12 and under. Purchase advance tickets at the courtesy counter in Central Market or at the door of the performance the night of show beginning at 6:45 pm.
