DCHS Journalism

Things are getting “All Shook Up" at this year's musical – including Friday's performance time.  Because of the Pheasants Forever banquet, Friday's performance has been moved up to 6:00 p.m.  Saturday's performance is still at 7:30 p.m.

"All Shook Up" is set in the 1950s in a small town in the Midwest. Chad (played by Reegon Witt) is a singing, dancing roustabout, just released from prison. Nearby, a young girl named Natalie (played by Faith Meitl) yearns for someone to sweep her off her feet and fall in love with her. She thinks that Chad could be that guy. 


The musical is actually a re-telling of William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” to the music of Elvis Presley, including hits such as “Jailhouse Rock,” “Fools Fall in Love,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Love Me Tender,” and “Hound Dog.”


Other cast members include Trae Woolsey as Jim Haller, Jean Soderlund as Sylvia, Skyler Brown as Lorraine, Tyler McHugh as Dennis, Danielle Rouse as Miss Sandra, Erin May as Mayor Matilda Hyde, Taite Woolsey as Dean Hyde, David Waterman as Sheriff Earl, and Lily Hendrickson as Henrietta.


Other cast members include Josiah Weyeneth, Emma Anderson, Melody Koerperich, Mackenzie Urban, Brynna Addleman, Courtlyn Waterman, Sarah Abernathy, Kelynn Jacobs, James Garner, and Jenna Juenemann.


According to director Kathryn Haffner, “All of the music consists of popular hits from Elvis Presley, performed by an awesome cast of DCHS students.”   Ladd Wendelin is the technical director.


Kaylen Ashley is the stage manager.  Stage hands are Josh Russ and Avery Reyes. Running the lights and sound will be Alex Hayward, Zac Corbett, Kelby Garrett, Logan Hayward, and Tod Mastin.  Accompanists are Jenny Tally and Isabel Grafel.


“Come see how a town can get turned on its head by a little music and dance,” said Ms. Haffner.
