Elvis song leaves Utah school district ‘All Shook Up’
High school play is scrapped after complaints about a sexually suggestive song.
A Utah school district has pulled the curtain on “All Shook Up,” a production that uses Elvis Presley’s music, reports The Associated Press. The show, which is loosely based on William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” is claimed to include a sexually suggestive song that could be taken as offensive.

District spokeswoman Sandy Riesgraf says a person approached the district and complained about the play. After reviewing the script, Riesgraf says it didn't meet new standards put in place in August after another high school play came under scrutiny.
Students at Herriman High School had already started rehearsing the play, which was scheduled to debut in February.

This isn’t the first time the plug has been pulled on a high school production due to so-called inappropriate content. Just last month, an Ohio woman was forced to resign from her post as drama teacher after a sold-out production of “Legally Blonde” was deemed too racy by school officials.
Do you think the play should have been canceled?

I would like to know how most of the people posting here are so sure it was a Mormon or a woman who complained? Remember Million Moms? They are everywhere. sounds to me that most of you are intimidated by the Mormons'. Why don't you take care of your lives and leave the Mormons' alone?
No I am not a Mormon nor do I live in Utah. I am your next door neighbor.
