When you take the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and The Bard and put them together, you get All Shook Up. The 2004 musical combines the music of Elvis Presley and William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night to create an energetic adventure that begins an 11-performance run Friday, Aug. 7.

Joe DiPietro’s musical tells the story of Chad, a cool guitar player who visits a quiet town and shows them how to rock – because that’s what Elvis would want. All Shook Up marks the third and final Elvis-themed show during the Erie Playhouse’s Summer of Elvis, meaning you have 11 chances left to hear songs like “Heartbreak Hotel” and “Jailhouse Rock” performed on the Playhouse stage. – Alex Bieler

7:30 p.m. Aug. 7, 8, 13-15, and 19-22, 2 p.m. Aug. 16 and 23  // 13 W. 10th St. // erieplayhouse.org
