Endstation kicks off its summer season with rock n’ roll’s greatest jam session! Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash make up the Million Dollar Quartet, which tells the story of December 4th, 1955, when each of these artists were signed to Sun Records. They found themselves together in the studio at the same time and unwittingly produced a piece of rock n’ roll history. Sing along to hits from each of their legendary canons and join Endstation at Randolph College’s Thoreson Theater as we celebrate one of America’s greatest musical collaborations.

Prepare for the world’s wackiest history lesson as three members of Endstation Theatre Company attempt to cover America’s rich, complex, and expansive past… in about two hours. Performed in front of Poplar Forest, Thomas Jefferson’s historic summer home, we’ll present a version of American history that our founding father’s will surely be grateful they are dead for. Undying patriotism, political intrigue, and cross-dressing: J. Edgar Hoover gives it two thumbs up!
THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF AMERICA (ABRIDGED)
By Adam Long, Austin Tichenor, and Jess Martin
July 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22 at Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest

Endstation is proud to present this powerful and gripping tale set in Virginia at the end of the Civil War. A confederate soldier returns home to the only family he has left: two of his former slaves, now emancipated. The secrets and lies contained in their family history come to light in an evening of total suspense (with an edge-of-your-seat ending). Performed at historic Miller Park in the beautiful Aviary, this very special production will run for a limited time, only one week. You won’t want to miss it.
“Whipping Man, The” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
THE WHIPPING MAN
