Curtain goes up for 'All Shook Up' on Friday


“I have to be very stern,” she said, giggling at the thought of the Mamie Eisenhower Decency Act she has imposed.

The cast and crew are all hoping for a sold out show when the curtain goes up.

“I encourage everyone to come,” said freshman Selina Brito of Haverhill, who has several ensemble parts. “It’s loud and fun, like ‘Grease’ and ‘Footloose’ mixed together.”

“It’s a high-energy show with foot-stomping, irresistible music everyone will know,” said producer Linda Urban, music teacher at Whittier.

Urban is co-directing the play this year with media specialist/librarian Richard Porcelli.

“The kids have worked really hard and it’s going to be a great show,” Porcelli said.

Bias said the show’s cast couldn’t ask for better material.

“Elvis is such a cool guy,” Bias said. “We’re trying to channel him with our acting and singing and dancing.”

Whittier is at 115 Amesbury Line Road.
