Sierra Repertory Theatre in Sonora is opening a new tribute concert celebrating the music of Jerry Lee Lewis and his contemporaries.

Great Balls of Fire opens Thursday and is more than half sold out, so buy tickets now!

After playing Jerry Lee Lewis in Million Dollar Quartet in over 75 cities, Jason Cohen brings his ivory-smashing, high-energy performance to this new theatrical concert. Cohen might not be from the South or have blonde hair, but as the stories he shares tell us, he found connection with ‘The Killer’ through the music. Alongside his multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist band of singer- musicians, the audience will be quickly reminded of the power of those tunes. Featuring songs of Lewis’s contemporaries such as Elvis, Cash, and Buddy, as well as the New Orleans and gospel traditionals that inspired Lewis, Great Balls of Fire will have the audience dancing, singing, and saying “goodness gracious – when can we buy tickets again?!”

The band includes Jason Cohen, William Boyajian, Lucas Darnell, Justin Brown, and Jon Rossi. Great Balls of Fire was created by Jason Cohen and Michael Schiralli. Musical arrangements are by Jason Cohen and the cast. It is a property of Emmett Productions LLC.

The run of Great Balls of Fire coincides with Dogfight, playing at the Fallon House Theatre in Columbia State Historic Park through Oct. 2.

This tribute concert plays in The Annex at the East Sonora Theatre, Sept. 15 through Sept. 25. Show times are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7PM, and Saturday and Sunday at 2PM. Beer, wine, and snack boxes by Chef Dave, will be available for purchase to enjoy during performances.

Doors open one hour before each performance so patrons can come early to select their seats, enjoy refreshments, and possibly mingle with the stars. Limited general seating, get your tickets now!

The East Sonora Theatre is located at 13891 Mono Way, Sonora. The Historic Fallon House Theatre is located at 11175 Washington St. in Columbia, California. Both theaters are air-conditioned and ADA accessible.
