WASHINGTON TERRACE

ALL SHOOK UP

Beverly’s Terrace Plaza Playhouse, 99 E. 4700 South, Washington Terrace

With classic songs like “Love Me Tender,” “All Shook Up,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Burning Love,” “A Little Less Conversation” and many more, audience members will be tapping their feet all night long. It’s 1955, and into a square little town in a square little state rides a guitar-playing guy who changes everything and everyone he meets in this hip-swiveling, lip-curling musical fantasy that will have you jumping out of your blue suede shoes. Get your tickets now to this jukebox musical favorite!

CENTERVILLE 

9 to 5 

CenterPoint Theatre, 525 N. 400 West, Centerville

When you’re trying to climb the corporate ladder, things can be a bit tough, but when you are a woman working for a “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot,” it’s even worse. Three co-workers — Judy, Violet and Doralee — despise their boss and think up all sorts of ways of doing him in, but when an innocent mistake turns deadly, things take a turn for the wacky and wild. A laugh-a-minute comedy from the 1980s hit movie starring Dolly Parton about three heroines taking on “the man” and stepping into the shoes they were always meant to fill.

Performances: 7 p.m. Mondays to Saturdays through Sept. 2

Tickets: $19.50-25.50 at centerpointtheatre.org/tickets or call 801-298-1302

ANNIE

Heritage Theatre, 2505 S. Highway 89, Perry

Annie is a spunky, Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan’s evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
