On Saturday, July 11, Door Community Auditorium (DCA) will present a performance of A Night to Remember, an exuberant night of musical storytelling that pays tribute to the night when Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash gathered at Memphis’ Sun Studios for a historic night of music.
Examiner.com calls A Night to Remember “just amazing.”
On December 4, 1956, four musical legends met in an impromptu gathering at Sun Record Studios. When Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash all happened to gather together on that winter evening in Memphis, the electrifying result truly was “a night to remember”—in fact, the Memphis Press-Scimitar called the grouping a “million-dollar quartet.”
DCA audiences will get to witness the power of that musical evening firsthand as it is recreated by the A Night to Remember cast, who will also play iconic favorites like Blue Suede Shoes, Walk the Line, Ring of Fire, Great Balls of Fire, and Hound Dog. Uncannily recreated by the show’s talented and joyful cast, A Night to Remember consists of ninety minutes of exuberant rockabilly, country, gospel, and pure 1950’s rock and roll.
A Night to Remember is made possible by major sponsor Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant and Butik, as well as supporting sponsor The Cordon Family Foundation.
