MEC Is ‘All Shook Up’ As 2020 Musical Gets Underway By TY Student Laura Desmond We are delighted to inform you that the 2020 TY musical is none other than ‘All Shook Up’. Our musical will be run from Tuesday, February 4th to Sunday, February 9th, 2020. This American jukebox musical follows Chad, ‘a good looking, motorcycle-riding roustabout, who rides from town with a guitar on his back, blue suede shoes on his feet and a song in his heart’. It will feature music from the Elvis Presley songbook. MEC’s annual School Musical takes place every February. Participation is mandatory for Transition Years and students can choose from a wide range of roles such as performance-based roles to the art team to set construction.
