ALL SHOOK UP!
The music of Elvis comes alive in ALL SHOOK UP! It’s 1955, a square little town in a square little state is thrown into a frenzy when Chad, a good-looking, motorcycle-riding roustabout rides in to town with a guitar on his back, blue suede shoes on his feet, and a song in his heart. This hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical will have you jumpin’ out of your blue suede shoes with such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Hound Dog,” “Jailhouse Rock,” and so many more! The Community House is located at 415 W. Eighth Street, Hinsdale. 630-323-7500. www.thecommunityhouse.org

Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog, Toad and their friends plant a garden, fly kites, swim in the pond and learn life lessons along the way. This song-filled year in the life of two charming woodland characters was a Broadway hit that captivated children, adults—and critics (Variety declared it “delighted young eyes and minds”). Part vaudeville, part make believe…all charm. This is a whimsical show that will delight all ages! Located at 900 Foster Avenue in Medinah, Illinois.
