“Million Dollar Quartet” Rock ‘n’ Roll Musical Set for Feb. 24

The Kohlenberg Lyceum Series will finish the 2015-16 season with a performance featuring the music of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 24 in Baldwin Hall Auditorium.

“Million Dollar Quartet” is the smash-hit musical inspired by the famed recording session that brought together the rock ‘n’ roll icons for the first and only time. On Dec. 4, 1956, these four young musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever.

“Million Dollar Quartet” brings that legendary night to life, featuring a score of rock hits including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “That’s All Right,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Walk the Line,” “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On,” “Who Do You Love?,” “Matchbox,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Hound Dog” and many more beloved hits. The Tony-award winning musical will be adapted into an eight-episode TV series on Country Music Television, premiering later this year.

Students can pick up their free ticket by presenting a Truman ID at the Student Activities Board Box Office, located in the lower level of the Student Union Building. Faculty and staff can receive their free tickets by showing their Truman ID at the Information Center in the Student Union Building.
General admission tickets may be purchased for $11 per ticket online at lyceum.truman.edu, at the cashier’s window in McClain Hall or at Edna Campbells in downtown Kirksville.
Due to the popularity of this show, any campus tickets still available two days before the performance will be made available to the public to purchase.
