Grand Prairie Arts Council presents GPAC’s 2017 Summer Musical “All Shook Up” on June 16


All Shook Up, The story is all new, the hits are all Elvis!

Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley. It’s 1955, and into a square little town in a square little state rides a guitar-playing roustabout who changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy that’ll have you jumpin’ out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Jailhouse Rock,” and “Don’t Be Cruel.”
