Jordan School District officials announced plans to scrap Herriman High School's production of 'All Shook Up', saying it could be offensive.
It was not immediately clear which song prompted the decision.
District spokeswoman Sandy Riesgraf says a person approached the Utah district and complained about the play, which is loosely based on William Shakespeare's 'Twelfth Night'.
Ms Riesgraf says administrators reviewed the script and determined it didn't meet new standards put in place in August after another high school play came under scrutiny.
The Deseret News reports students had already started rehearsing the play, which was scheduled for February. A replacement will be selected.
