The 60th Annual Zilker Summer Musical: All Shook Up

In Summer 2018, ZTP journeys back to the era of the first Zilker Summer Musical – which opened on The Zilker Hillside in 1959 – with the Elvis-inspired All Shook Up! Set in 1950's America, our show tells the story of characters who yearn to leave behind the confines of a segregated and oppressed small town to follow their dreams and fall in love. All Shook Up is inspired by Shakespeare, enlivened by the soulful hits of Elvis, and fueled by themes of inclusion, self-reliance, and the power of music. This family-friendly production promises to be a celebration on The Hillside for 26 performances, Thursday through Sunday nights, July 6 - August 18, 2018.
