“Million Dollar Quartet” now playing through October 24.

Hale Centre Theatre (HCT) presents the rock 'n' roll musical Million Dollar Quartet on the Young Living Centre Stage now through Oct. 24 at the Mountain America Performing Arts Centre.

In December 1956, in a small Memphis recording studio, four icons of music met-and played the greatest jam session that changed rock 'n' roll forever. In Million Dollar Quartet, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins take to the stage for this story of a singular moment in rock 'n' roll history, and a night of legendary music that lived on in infamy.

"Each of these four artists had a lasting effect on songwriting, the music industry, and the greater society as a whole," said Rob Moffat, director and music director of HCT's production. "Their music has lasted generations. Million Dollar Quartet is about the legacy of the music and the moments that created that legacy."

Featuring classic favorites like "Blue Suede Shoes," "I Walk the Line," and "Great Balls of Fire," Million Dollar Quartet is like a true rock concert, with actors playing the music live on stage.

Starring as the Million Dollar Quartet is David Paul Smith as Jerry Lee Lewis, Bryan Matthew Hague as Carl Perkins, Benjamin D. Hale as Johnny Cash and Michael D. Potter as Elvis Presley.

The set is designed by Jenn Stapley Taylor, with projections by Bobby Gibson, lighting by Jaron Hermansen, sound by Dan Morgan, costumes by Tracy Graham, properties design by Michelle Jensen, and hair and makeup design by Trisha Ison.
