Following on from their hugely successful production of the 'The Wedding Singer', the students of Coláiste Rís are hitting the stage again with their production of the highly acclaimed musical 'All Shook Up' this May.

Transition Year students have been busy rehearsing since auditions in early October.

Eoghan McGeough who plays the lead role of Chad said everyone involved was looking forward to the show. 'All of the Transition Year students are involved in the production, including the promotion of the event, the costumes and the set design so it's a big production with everyone working as a team.'

'Learning the routines was probably most difficult for us all, as there were many moves involved, but we're delighted with what we've achieved and we're certain we'll put on a fantastic show.'

All Shook Up is a musical comedy built around a number of songs made famous by Elvis Presley. It takes place in 1955, somewhere in Middle America, where one girl's dream and a surprise visit from a mysterious leather-jacketed roustabout, guitar-playing stranger help a small town to discover the magic of romance and the power of rock & roll.

The students are performing for three nights in The Táin Arts Centre, opening on Wednesday May 9th, at 8pm, and the students would love everyone to go along and support their hard work.
