From May 18-June 2, Jenny Wiley Theatre will be showing Million Dollar Quartet. The Tony® Award Winning 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.
From the moment the curtain rises, parents and children alike will be on their feet dancing along to a pop-infused
soundtrack with new Sesame Street friends and live emcees Casey and Caleb. Planning a party isn’t
easy when everybody has a different idea of fun, but with some help from the audience, it becomes the ultimate
reflection of what friendship plus teamwork can accomplish. Party guests will sing along to new and familiar
songs, like “I Love Trash” and “C is for Cookie,” with Oscar the Grouch and Cookie Monster; dance to the beat
with Elmo; explore a wintry wonderland when Abby Cadabby’s magic goes awry; take flight with Big Bird to
learn about some of his fabulous feathered friends; and discover new cultures in an interactive Spanish lesson
with Rosita. A unique, up-close-and-personal pre-show experience will be offered at an additional charge prior
to select performances, allowing families the opportunity to tour the on-stage neighborhood of their favorite,
furry friends before they arrive for the main show. The fun doesn’t end there. A variety of interactive activities
give children the chance to create, discover and learn as they help decorate for the upcoming party.
