DuBois, PA – The Reitz Theater Players will present Million Dollar Quartet at the DuBois Area Middle School this Saturday at 7:30 p.m., as a special one-night fundraising performance for the Reitz Theater.
The Reitz hopes to put the money towards expanding its building in Downtown DuBois.
The musical is set in 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.
These are songs that you’ll know and love! Some of them include “Walk the Line,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Hound Dog,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” and more.
Doors open at 6:30, and there will be raffles and refreshments beforehand.
Tickets are $25.
You can purchase tickets at ReitzTheater.com, at Ace Hardware in DuBois, or at the Reitz Theater box office (36 East Scribner Avenue, DuBois) on Mondays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or Wednesdays from 4 until 7.
You’ll 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.
The Million Dollar Quartet is being directed by Becky Sensor, with music direction by Joe Sensor.
Local actor Jason Phipps plays Sam Phillips, the owner and founder of Sun Records. Other local actors include Dominic Umbaugh as Carl Perkins, Nate Horner as Elvis Presley, Tom Hibbert as Johnny Cash, Max Sensor as Jerry Lee Lewis, and Emma Reed as Dyanna.
