Participants included Daniel Bomier, Ben Bomier, Analiese Bradshaw and Vivienne Johnson. Cast members included Marlana Dunn (Mary Delgado), Thomas Fiscella (Gyp DeCarlo), Barry Anderson (Bob Crewe) and Matthew Dailey (Tommy DeVito)

While Broadway shows are in town you might see your favorite actors and actresses walking about downtown Appleton, getting necessities at the mall, visiting local friends and family or even doing the Lambeau Leap. However, occasionally cast members also help to enhance the community they are visiting by offering special opportunities through our Community First Community Engagement Activities.

When the Jersey Boys took over Appleton last week, members of the community were given the opportunity to participate in a Mock Audition Master Class at Heid Music. Singing in front of the stars, participants got one-on-one tips, suggestions and lessons from the pros. Afterwards, everyone present was welcome to ask the cast questions about life on the road, how they made it big and their favorite part of being in a Broadway production.

It was very inspiring to watch each participant come out of their shell and learn from the cast members’ expertise.

We thank each of the participants for putting themselves out there and thank the cast of Jersey Boys for their willingness to teach a class. We look forward to a similar opportunity with the cast of Dirty Dancing this June!
