Q – Why did you audition for All Shook Up?

A – I auditioned because my dance classes stopped during the summer and an Elvis musical sounded like so much fun.

Q – What are some other shows people may recognize you from? 

A – People may have seen me in the Parkway Playhouse Junior productions of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Jr., Disney’s Mulan, Jr., Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, Jr.,  or Guys and Dolls, Jr. I was also in The King and I on the Mainstage at Parkway.

Q – Why is All Shook Up different from other musicals?

A – This show has at least one song that every audience member will recognize, and it is so much fun when you can hum along to the music from your seat!

Q – What is the #1 reason people should see this show?

A – Because it’s different. Even if the thought of an Elvis musical horrifies you, everyone should give it a chance. It is refreshingly unusual, and I think even traditional audience members will be pleasantly surprised.

Come see Samarie and the rest of the cast of All Shook Up July 25th-August 8th!
