Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department alumni Courtney Mack ’15 and Michael Kurowski ’16, both graduates of the Theatre Department’s BFA Program in Musical Theatre Performance, are in the company of the rock musical Million Dollar Quartet, running September 13-October 29 at the Paramount Theatre, located at 23 East Galena in Aurora.
Mack, who has previously appeared at the Paramount in Mamma Mia!, is the winner of a 2016 Joseph Jefferson Award for her lead performance in the Chicago premiere of Heathers: The Musical. Kurowski, a multi-instrumentalist as well as an actor-singer-dancer, recently returned to Chicago following a national tour with the musical Once.
Million Dollar Quartet, a 2010 Broadway hit, re-creates a landmark event in rock ‘n’ roll history: a 1956 session at Memphis’ Sun Records recording studio by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis. In the Paramount production, Mack plays Dyanne, a companion of Presley’s. Kurowski understudies the role of Jerry Lee Lewis. The show is directed by former Columbia College Chicago musical theatre dance teacher Jim Corti.
