Million Dollar Quartet at the Hoogland

June 20, 2022

The Hoogland Center for the Arts is thrilled to present MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET in the LRS Theatre on August 26-28 and September 2-4. The show will be directed by Steve Kaplan with musical direction by Damien Kaplan. The show is sponsored by Edward Jones.


The Tony® Award-nominated musical MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET is set on December 4, 1956, when an extraordinary twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley together at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever.


MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET brings that legendary December night to life with an irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets, betrayal and celebrations that is both poignant and funny.


Relive the era with the smash-hit sensation featuring an incredible score of rock ‘n’ roll, gospel, R&B and country hits, performed live onstage by world-class actors and musicians. Showcased hit songs include “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Walk the Line,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Who Do You Love?,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Hound Dog,” and more.


MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET will be presented at The Hoogland Center for the Arts on Friday, August 26 at 8pm; Saturday, August 27 at 8pm; Sunday, August 28 at 2pm; Friday, September 2 at 8 pm; Saturday, September, 3 at 8pm; and Sunday, September 4 at 2pm.
