News   Guest, Kreis, Lyons and Wolfe to Star in Million Dollar Quartet Musical
 
Casting has been announced for the Village Theatre's upcoming production of Million Dollar Quartet, which will kick off the season of the theatre company based in both Everett and Issaquah, WA.

Directed by Floyd Mutrux and Matt Walker, the new musical will run Sept. 19-Oct. 28 in Issaquah and Nov. 2-18 in Everett. Chuck Mead will be the musical director.

The cast will feature Lance Guest — of "The Last Starfighter" fame — as Johnny Cash with Levi Kreis as Jerry Lee Lewis, Rob Lyons as Carl Perkins, Dane Stokinger as Elvis Presley, Matt Wolfe as Sam Phillips and Jessica Skerritt as Elvis' showgirl girlfriend Dyanne.

Million Dollar Quartet, according to press notes, "will take you back to the place where rock-n-roll was born! On December 4, 1956, at Sun Studios in Memphis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley came together for the first and only time. They rocked the house...then rocked the world! These four legends-to-be and the 'Father of Rock-n-Roll,' Sam Phillips, who discovered them all, united for an impromptu recording session that would be one for the ages. The musicians played, talked, played, joked, played, argued, and played all night — and were quickly christened the 'Million Dollar Quartet.' Part jam session, part bull session, and chock full of rock-n-roll classics from the 50s, this unforgettable new musical will have you dancing in the aisles."

The Village Theatre's mainstage season will also include The King and I, Barefoot in the Park, Little Women and Aida.
