Clarksville couple has a lifetime of Elvis memories

 

Clarksville, TN - Walker and Judy McCutcheon are big Elvis Presley fans.

HUGE!

And if you know the two retired Fort Campbell school teachers, then you know what a big understatement that is.

Impeccable cast ‘shakes up’ the Roxy stage with repertoire of Elvis hits

 

The Roxy Regional Theatre’s new production, All Shook Up, is a rollicking romp through our musical “yesterday.” It’s an Elvis Presley fantasy set in a small town where all the action is played out through a score that could be subtitled “Elvis Presley’s Greatest hits.”

Natalie (Maria Maloney) falls instantly in love with Chad (Bryan Davis), who’s ridden into town a bold Red Harley.

It’s the third show I’ve seen in a year that has taken this route of mixing one singer or groups’ music and parlaying that playlist into a new form, integrating the music as part of the storyline. The film Across the Universe did a masterful job with the repertoire of the Beatles’, while the Mama Mia movie fared less well with its ABBA soundtrack. This live theatre production, All Shook Up, and this fabulous Roxy cast come out on the highest end of that scale.

  • First, as we baby boomers know, you can’t go wrong with a good Elvis song.
  • Second, this Roxy cast was perhaps its strongest ever ensemble of singers/dancers/actors/comics.
  • Third, they had clever material and fine hand in direction and choreography.
