A Utah school district has banned a high school from performing 'All Shook Up,' an Elvis Presley musical. In 2013, Elvis Presley returns to the list of music deemed worthy of parental censorship.
[UPDATED Jan. 4, 2012: The show will go on! See latest here.]
One parent was "All Shook Up" and once again Elvis Presley's music has been banned.
A Utah school district on Wednesday canceled the upcoming performance of the Herriman High School musical "All Shook Up."
"What was communicated to us, they were upset with sexually explicit language and some other aspects of the play," Sandy Riesgraf, Jordan district spokeswoman, told The Salt Lake Tribune. "What they deemed cross-dressing."
Herriman High parent Jill Fishback said she found nothing offensive about "All Shook Up."
"I’m at a loss," Fishback told the Tribune. "They’re singing Elvis songs. A girl dresses up as a boy and kisses a boy. ... It’s not promoting homosexuality. It was supposed to be a farce."
