Legend House International is excited to announce audition registrations are now open for ‘Jersey Boys’ – directed by Thomas Armstrong-Robley, musical direction by Robert Clark and choreography/assistant direction by Jenny Morison.
About the show:
Jersey Boys is the smash-hit musical biography of The Four Seasons – their rise to fame, the tough times, personal clashes and ultimately, the triumph of a group of friends whose music became the soundtrack of a generation.
Set in the vibrant 1960’s, four scrappy young men from New Jersey – Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Nick Massi and Tommy DeVito find a magic sound which propels them from singing under street-lamps to selling out stadiums all over the world. With era defining songs like “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Walk Like A Man”, “December ’63”, “Rag Doll”, “Working My Way Back To You”, “Dawn (Go Away)” and many more, the quartet finds itself at the top of the charts and seemingly, the world.
The real theme of the show is loyalty; an allegiance to a code of honour forged in the streets of native Belleville, New Jersey and how these four most unlikely of stars made it through gambling debts, mafia threats and heartbreaking family disasters, all the way to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and musical immortality.
We ask that performers complete the form at the Jersey Boys website and attach both their C.V and headshot by July 24th at 5:00pm
