The musical, “All Shook Up”, finished a successful three-night run at Grace United Church, with a full-capacity audience on Saturday night.
Lead cast member Mike Froh (who played Chad, the guitar-playing roustabout) took flowers in hand after all of the cast took their applause from the audience, and he paid tribute to director Colleen Weimer, noting that Weyburn as a community is very fortunate to have her talent and enthusiasm here.
He then presented the flowers to Weimer with a hug, and the cast did one last rendition of one of their songs, getting all of the audience to clap in time with them.
There were 35 cast members, plus about 15 behind-the-scenes people doing sound, lights and music for the production, which featured about 20 Elvis songs woven into the storyline.
Other key members of the cast include Natalie/Ed, a mechanic and Jim’s daughter, played by Kendra Gonczy; her father Jim, owner of the gas station, played by Steven Zackrisson; Sylvia, owner of the Honky Tonk, played by D’Arcy Megenbir; Sheriff Earl, played by Lorne Klein; Miss Sandra, the museum curator, played by Jessica Ziegler; Dennis, a nerdy guy in love with Natalie, played by Jade Rooney; Lorraine, the teenage daughter of Sylvia, played by Kristen Fortune; and Dean Hyde, the mayor’s son, played by Onello Bahingawan.
