Gold Coast audiences can look forward to a “world class spectacle” when Jersey Boys takes the stage at The Star Gold Coast Theater on January 6, 2022.
The Queensland actors have been busy rehearsing the hit musical, which tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Season.
“We have a cast of 15 and a squad of 15-20. It’s all the Queenslanders who are a real hit because so often the Queenslanders go away,” director Thomas Armstrong – Robley told myGC.

Gold Coaster Bryn Jenke will take on the lead role of Frankie Valli and be joined by some of the state’s top performers who typically reside overseas.
“The cast is made up of so many people who would otherwise perform all over the world – London, the United States, on cruise ships – and we’ve all come back,” he said.
“It’s a world class cast and a world class show that you’re going to get to see on the Gold Coast, that I don’t think we’ve all seen before.”

Mr Armstrong – Robley, who will also play Tommy DeVito on the show, said that while rehearsals did not begin until Monday, December 13, the energetic and talented cast are on track for opening night.
“It’s an intense process. The whole show is now stuck and we are in the process of putting it back together and cleaning it up, ”he said.
Mr Jenke told myGC he was delighted to see the show unfold.
“It’s such a great show. It is possibly one of the longest running shows on Broadway. We were able to piece together the show, with detailed scenes, in five days, which is just crazy when you think about it, ”he said.
