The multi-award-winning group, fresh off their triumph with last year’s Calendar Girls production, is excited to bring this vibrant musical to life.

All Shook Up tells the story of Chad, a leather-jacketed stranger who rolls into a small town and stirs up a whirlwind of romance, adventure, and plenty of rock ‘n’ roll.

With its infectious melodies, heartfelt lyrics, and hilarious antics, All Shook Up is the perfect escape.

The lead stars include Niall Brennan, Danielle McElroy, Ciara Gallagher, Laura Doherty, Luke McHugh, Rodney Mc Keague, Aoife Farmer, Ciaran Gallagher, Mary Lane and Martin Anderson as Sheriff Earl.

The cast is complemented by musical direction from Denise Roper, costume design by Olivia Kelly, stage manager Fiona Mc Daid and technical manager Niall Cranney.

The Letterkenny Music and Drama Group have had a bit of a shake-up themselves too, as this is the first year since the retirement of director Pluincead O’Fearraigh. Pluincead has been synonymous with quality productions since the group’s foundation in 1991.

Long-time members Tina Higgins and Maire McGinley have taken over the reins to co-direct and choreograph the 2023 production.

“We have big shoes to fill but hopefully we’ll do Pluincead and everyone proud,” said Tina.

“All Shook Up is an upbeat musical that everybody is going to love. The talent is so good that you won’t want to miss it.”

Maire says the team behind the scenes are amazing and she is so excited to see their vision hit the stage and watch the audience’s response to their talented cast!
