The summer brings Escanaba in da Moonlight, Jeff Daniel’s love letter to Michigan, followed by Million Dollar Quartet, a musical that recreates one of the greatest jam sessions in history: the night when Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins hung out in the studio at Sun Records. The show contains dozens of hits, including “Blue Suede Shoes,” “I Walk the Line,” “Great Balls of Fire,” and much more.

It’s important to note that stage productions are only a part of what brings thousands to Turkeyville every year.
