Million Dollar Quartet at Russ Mobley Theater June 30-July 4

By Gerard Flanagan

Campbellsville, KY - On Dec. 4, 1956, an extraordinary twist of fate brought four music legends together for an unforgettable night at Sun Records in Memphis, Tenn.

"Million Dollar Quartet," which relives that night when Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley came together for one of the greatest jam sessions ever, comes to Campbellsville University's Russ Mobley Theater, 114 University Drive, Campbellsville, Ky., June 30-July 4, 2022.

Performance times June 30, July 1 and July 4 are 7pmET. Performance time on July 2 is 6pmET, and performance time July 3 is 2:30pmET.

"Million Dollar Quartet" is presented by Campbellsville University's Department of Theatre and Dance, Town Hall Productions and Heritage Children Services.

The musical, which was nominated for a Tony Award, "brings that legendary December night to life with an irresistible tale of broken promises, secrets, betrayal and celebrations that is both poignant and funny," a synopsis of the musical explains.

Viewers will have the opportunity to listen to classic rock 'n' roll, gospel, R&B and country hits, including "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.
