(WIS) - The Winner of the 2010 Tony for Best Musical, Memphis, is at the Trustus Theatre.

Dewey Scott-Wiley is the director of Memphis. Sebastian Sowell plays the role of Felicia Farrell. They joined Dawndy Mercer Plank on WIS TV to highlight why audiences will be tapping their toes at this production.

Memphis is set in the smoky halls and underground clubs of the segregated 1950s. This show tells the story of a young white DJ named Huey Calhoun who fell in love with rock 'n' roll and an electrifying black singer.

Memphis is an original story about the cultural revolution that erupted when his vision met her voice and the music changed forever. The cast says, "This award-winning musical about the birth of rock 'n' roll will thrill you, move you, and have you dancing in the aisles."

The musical Memphis will be at the Trustus Theatre through July 28.
