All Shook Up
At CPCC's Dale Halton Theatre
Friday March 10 at 7:00 pm
Saturday March 11 at 2:30 & 7:00 pm

Chad, a freewheeling roustabout, arrives in a small midwestern town that is under the thumb of the very uptight Mayor Mathilda and her strict code—no dancing, no tight pants, no public displays of affection. With Chad in town, the rules fall by the wayside and everyone starts to fall in Burning Love! The show features all Elvis music— Jailhouse Rock, Don’t Be Cruel, Hound Dog, Can’t Help Falling in Love With You and many others!

In Memory of John Fraker

A word from Bonnie:

“I have never been happier that I teach at Northwest School of the Arts. So many wonderful people from the NWSA family came to support me and my family yesterday at the memorial for my husband – administrators, staff, teachers, former teachers, students, former students, parents, even parents of students who graduated years ago. I was proud beyond words of my amazing students who sang – Karley Kornegay, Jocelyn Cabaniss, Liam Pearce, Ryan Kapur, Jeremy Mitchell Cousar, and Keston Steele, and Jordan Hardesty, who played piano. John was always so proud of the NWSA students, and he would have loved their beautiful renditions of some of his favorite songs. My family and out of town friends were blown away by their voices. Finally, I am so blessed to have the friends/colleagues I do — Kristin Stonnell, who played so beautifully.; Matt Hinson who made me cry like a baby with his rendition of “You Raise Me Up”, and who organized and rehearsed the students and the rest of the music, and who has generally been my rock through this ordeal; Corey D Mitchell, who officiated like a pro, and who made my laugh at loud. His beautiful tribute to John was heartfelt and perfect, and he has been here for me at every turn; Finally, the beautiful Lucinda Barca Supernavage, who has been there herself, and who gave me a digital and understanding shoulder to cry on. These people, and so many others were generous and compassionate when I needed it. I love my NWSA famliy.”
