Welcome back, Ethan Ray Parker to the Springer stage. Ethan is starring as the rock ‘n’ roll wild man, Jerry Lee Lewis, in the upcoming production of Million Dollar Quartet.

He has played in the orchestra for Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and the upcoming production of Newsies. A native of Valdosta, Georgia and graduate of Valdosta State University, Ethan has been traveling the country acting and playing piano for the past two years. The Springer’s production of Million Dollar Quartet, opening November 2, will be Ethan’s fourth time playing the role or Jerry Lee Lewis. He recently performed the role at Timber Lake Playhouse in Mount Carroll, Illinois, The Atlanta Lyric Theatre, and Georgia Ensemble Theatre in Atlanta. He first played the role at Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre in Grand Lake, Colorado in fall of 2016 where he was nominated for two Broadway World Denver Awards for Best Featured Actor in a Musical and Best Colorado Newcomer. The Atlanta Journal Constitution called Ethan’s piano work in Million Dollar Quartet “miraculous” and called him a “young performer to watch.” There will be a “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On”. when Ethan’s Jerry Lee Lewis hits the ivories.
Million Dollar Quartet, the smash hit Broadway musical, is inspired by the true story of the legendary recording session that brought together rock ‘n’ roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time. By pure chance, these four young musicians dropped in at Sun Records in Memphis on December 4, 1956. The result? The greatest impromptu recording sessions of all time. Don’t miss your chance to be a fly on the wall of fame as the “Million Dollar Quartet” performs their greatest rockabilly, gospel and country hits.
