Meet the happily every after High School Sweethearts below
Can't Help Falling In Love - Cheyenne (Natalie) and Paul (Dennis)
By Aviva Wielinga
“All Shook Up,” a full scale musical loosely based on Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” and featuring the best and favourite music of Elvis Presley is coming to Georgetown Globe Productions this fall. The story takes place in a downtrodden “middle American” town, a place of boredom, a place where the mayor is trying to improve the morality of the town by introducing decency laws, a place where a guitar playing, motorcycle riding ‘roustabout’ comes in and shakes things up. It is a hilarious and spirited show with several love triangles, great music, and fantastic dancing. Some of Elvis’s best music such as " If I Can Dream", "Blue Suede Shoes", "Teddy Bear", "Burning Love", “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” “Love Me Tender,” “Heartbreak Hotel,” and many others are the basis of the musical score.
Georgetown Globe Productions is excited to feature many veterans of the stage, and in this production four real life couples are involved in the show.
Cheyenne Harvey (Natalie) and Paul Stodolny (Dennis) have been involved in theatre a very long time, both since 1995. Cheyenne has been in Globe’s productions of “The Sound of Music,” “Man of La Mancha,” “South Pacific,” “City of Angels,’ “Nunsense,” “Crazy For You,” “Funny Girl,” and “Cabaret.” Paul has performed in “The Sound of Music,” “Man of La Mancha,” “Funny Girl,” “Assassins,” and “Cabaret.” It is interesting that just like Dennis pines away for Natalie in “All Shook Up,” so did Paul in his early days with Cheyenne. In 1996, when both Paul and Cheyenne were in Oliver, Paul wanted so much to go out with her, but Cheyenne would have no part of it.
Seems Paul won her over, and after being high school sweet hearts, they were married three years ago. Cheyenne loves the musical arrangements in the show and says they are amazingly composed. Paul says it feels like “Gospel music.” Paul says the script is meant to be ridiculously funny and corny, and the cast is incredible and everyone was into character from the first reading. Though both have been involved in other theatre groups, they consider Globe their home group. They are best friends with the artistic team.
