Georgia Ensemble Theatre’s “Million Dollar Quartet” on stage at Oglethorpe

Georgia Ensemble Theatre is bringing the smash-hit Tony Award-winning musical “Million Dollar Quartet,” directed by Chris Damiano, to the Conant Performing Arts Center, December 14, 2018 – January 12, 2019.

Based on the book by Floyd Mutrux and Colin Escott, Million Dollar Quartet is inspired by the famed recording session that brought together rock ‘n’ roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time.

On December 4, 1956, history was made when these four young musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest impromptu jam sessions ever. It brings to light the extraordinary story of broken promises, secrets, and the once-in-a-lifetime celebration of four friends that is both poignant and heartwarming.

Million Dollar Quartet brings that legendary night to life, featuring the music of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins including rock hits “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “That’s All Right,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Walk the Line,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Who Do You Love?,” “Matchbox,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Hound Dog” and more.

This thrilling musical brings you inside the recording studio with four major talents who came together as a red-hot rock ‘n’ roll band for one unforgettable night. Don’t miss your chance to be a fly on the wall of fame… at Million Dollar Quartet!
