The Million Dollar Quartet will visit the theatre from the 25th to the 30th September.
This musical is inspired by the famous 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, these four-star musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. Million Dollar Quartet, written by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux, brings that legendary night to life, featuring a score of rock hits including Blue Suede Shoes, Fever, That’s All Right, Sixteen Tons and Great Balls of Fire.
The cast for the production includes Peter Duncan, who will be playing ‘Father of Rock’n’Roll’ Sam Philips, Rhys Whitfield who will be performing as Elvis Presley, Martin Kaye is Jerry Lee Lewis, Robbie Durham performs as Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins is Matt Wycliffe while Katie Ray will be playing Dyanne.
Million Dollar Quartet is directed by Ian Talbot and features designs by David Farley, lighting by David Howe and sound by Ben Harrison.
The production will play at the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch from the 25th to the 30th September. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://www.queens-theatre.co.uk/whats-on/show/million-dollar-quartet/
