Million Dollar Quartet: The Story of the Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Jam Session

Western Canada Theatre celebrates the start of its mainstage  season with the explosive energy and music of Million Dollar Quartet, playing October 12 to 21 at Sagebrush Theatre. Inspired by the greatest jam session of all time, this rocking musical builds around a warm December evening in 1956 that brought Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins together at Sun Records. They joked, they brawled, and for that one evening, they forget their troubled, complicated lives to do what they loved best: make music. In the process, they made rock ‘n’ roll history!

Million Dollar Quartet, written by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux, brings some of Canada’s best musical theatre artists to the Continue reading Million Dollar Quartet: The Story of the Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Jam Session
