DIAMOND HEAD THEATRE
                                Kaimana Ramos stars as Chad in the jukebox musical “All Shook Up,” which takes its cue — and music — from Elvis Presley’s heyday in movies. Throw in a dash of mistaken identity comedy inspired by Shakespeare, too. Sarah Halford co-stars as Natalie/Ed, with Ramos.

‘All Shook Up’ is a jukebox musical with a twist
