San Diego, CA–San Diego Theatres will present the rock and roll holiday musical, “Million Dollar Quartet Christmas,” at the historic Balboa Theatre on December 11 and 12.
Members of the original Million Dollar Quartet team, Tony-nominated book writer Colin Escott and original orchestrator Chuck Mead reunite with director Scott Weinstein for this musical holiday celebration.
In “Million Dollar Quartet Christmas,” rock and roll newcomers and soon-to-be legends Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley, reunite to celebrate the holidays. Inspired by the true story of their December 1956 homecoming at Sun Records, the musical rings with sounds of the season and the chart-toppers that made the Million Dollar Quartet famous. The group journeys through stories of Christmas past, present, and future in a joyful evening filled with nostalgic holiday hits including “Run Rudolph Run,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.”
“Million Dollar Quartet Christmas” is presented by San Diego Theatres, the nonprofit that operates both the Balboa Theatre and San Diego Civic Theatre.
