– Aspire Performing Arts Company, an award-winning performing arts company based in Wayne, NJ, is seeking performers in grades 6 through 12 for its upcoming winter production of All Shook Up! Auditions will take place on October 26 and 27 in Wayne. 

Loosely based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, All Shook Up uses the music of Elvis Presley to take the audience on a hip-swiveling musical fantasy. It takes place in 1955, somewhere in middle America, where one girl's dream and a surprise visit from a mysterious leather-jacketed, guitar-playing stranger help a small town to discover the magic of romance and the power of rock & roll. Among the 24 songs featured in the score are classics like "Heartbreak Hotel," "Love Me Tender," "Don't Be Cruel," "Can't Help Falling in Love.”

Aspire PAC, established in 2011, has earned a strong reputation in the Northern New Jersey area for its high-quality theatrical productions and professional arts experiences for local youth. Since 2016, Aspire has received eight New Jersey Association of Community Theaters (NJACT) Award nominations, five Broadway World Regional nominations, and 45 National Youth Arts Award nominations and 25 National Youth Arts Awards.

Auditions are open to students in grades 6 through 12, with no prior experience necessary. Pre-registration for auditions is preferred. For more information, visit or call/email Aspire PAC at 201-220-4933 or
