BACK BY OVERWHELMING DEMAND! - Returning in 2017, after a smash-hit first season, the Welk Resort Theatre is proud to present MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, the Tony Award winning Broadway musical, inspired by the electrifying true story of the famed recording session where Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll" brought together icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for one unforgettable night.
On December 4, 1956, a twist of fate brought together the four, future rock and roll legends. The place was Sun Records’ storefront studio in Memphis. The man who made it happen was Sam Phillips, the owner of Sun Records who discovered them all. The four legends-to-be united for the only time in their careers for an impromptu recording that has come to be known as one of the greatest rock jam sessions of all time.
Featuring a treasure trove of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll, gospel, R&B and country hits from these music legends, including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Sixteen Tons,” “Who Do You Love?,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Ghost Riders,” and “Whole Lotta’ Shakin’ Goin’ On,” Million Dollar Quartet captures the infectious spirit and thrilling sounds of a singular moment when four of the music industry’s most extraordinary talents, all in their creative prime, came together for one of the most memorable nights in music history.
Million Dollar Quartet opens March 11 and runs through December 31st at Welk Resort Theatre. For ticket information visit WelkBranson.com or call 417.337.7469.

“Terry Fator is an incredible entertainer - from singing and comedy to celebrity impressions, he does it all. To simply call him a remarkable ventriloquist is like saying Michelangelo is a house painter.”-Larry King
