The internationally acclaimed stage sensation, JERSEY BOYS is heading back out on its second national tour! This smash hit musical has won 57 major awards worldwide, including the OLIVIER AWARD for BEST NEW MUSICAL.

Jersey Boys tells the true life story of four boys from the wrong side of the tracks who wrote their own songs, invented their own unique sound, and sold 100 million records worldwide. Featuring hit after legendary hit including BEGGIN’, CAN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU, OH WHAT A NIGHT, SHERRY, WALK LIKE A MAN, BYE BYE BABY, BIG GIRLS DON’T CRY and many more, JERSEY BOYS is a story full of heart, humour and ‘sheer musical razzmatazz’  you simply will never forget.

For anyone who has not seen this show I highly recommend it. As a lover of classical musical who has never liked “pop” I was dragged along to see this show which to my amazement I loved.
