Witness a Behind-the-Scenes experience of "Jersey Boys"

Now’s your chance to witness “Jersey Boys” in an entirely new way – an intimate view from backstage, featuring the stars of the mega-hit Chicago production.   You’ll even get the chance to take photos and gather autographs from the talented cast

The Center for Performing Arts at Governors State University presents an Exclusive Backstage Experience with the Stars of “Jersey Boys” Sunday, Sept. 21 at 6 p.m. 

The Chicago cast of "Jersey Boys"

The evening begins at 6 p.m. in the lobby of The Center for Performing Arts at Governors State University, where guests will gather to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.  Just prior to the performance, dessert will be served on The Center’s stage.  The “Jersey Boys” cast will serenade guests with chart topping songs from the past beginning at 7 p.m. The performance, with the audience seated at tables on The Center’s gorgeous stage, will include Top 40 hits not seen in the Broadway production of “Jersey Boys,” including “In the Still of the Night” by the Five Satins, “For the Longest Time” by Billy Joel and more.  The unforgettable evening concludes with the opportunity for autographs and photos with the cast.

From executive director of the University’s Center for Performing Arts, Burt Dikelsky: “This experience with members of the ‘Jersey Boys’ cast offers an incredible opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the largest musical stars in Chicago.”
