ATHENS, Ga. -- Memphis is the next production in the Classic Center Theatre's 2013-14 Broadway Entertainment Series.
The Best Musical winner at the 2010 Tony Awards will be staged Thursday, Jan. 9 at 7:30 p.m.
According to the Classic Center:
The show takes place in the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated 1950s, where a young white disc jockey named Huey Calhoun falls in love with everything he shouldn't: rock and roll and an electrifying black singer. The musical is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice, and the music changed forever.
Come along on their incredible journey to the ends of the airwaves -- filled with laughter, vibrant choreography and roof-raising rock 'n' roll.
