PULLMAN — Marking the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ death on Aug. 16, 1977, Regional Theatre of the Palouse will present the Broadway musical comedy “All Shook Up,” a tribute to the lip-curling, hip-swiveling talent of the so-called King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.The upbeat fantasy is based on Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” and draws from Presley’s 150 albums and singles that have been certified gold, platinum or multi-platinum to tell the story of Chad (Michael Todd, Pullman), a motorcycle riding wanderer who lands in a small, square town. Suddenly everyone is falling in burning love with all the wrong people. Natalie (Emma Kurtenbach, Pullman), the town’s mechanic, dreams of life on the open road and fancies Chad but Chad only has eyes for the town’s stunning museum curator, Sandra (Alexandra Bennett, Pullman). However, Sandra only has eyes for an even more mysterious new man in town. The musical is directed by John Rich, the theater’s executive director.
