“All Shook Up” follows a small town in the 1950s that recognizes the unjustness of social segregation after a leather-jacketed stranger motorcycles into town.

The cast features 15 thespians from Hinckley, Somonauk, Plano, Sheridan, Montgomery and DeKalb.

While there is no character named Elvis in the production, a guitar-playing, motorcycle-riding roustabout named Chad is the star male and most emulates the king of rock.
