How about a once-in-a-lifetime chance to perform in the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s professional production of the Tony® and Grammy Award®-winning musical Jersey Boys in January?

The Theatre is currently seeking diverse young performers (both boys and girls) who can portray ages 14-18 to be the “Four Seasons Fan Club” in the Theatre’s three-week run of Broadway’s Jersey Boys (January 11 – 30). Some performing experience helpful; must be able to work with professional performers in an ensemble setting and lift and move props as needed.

Auditions will take place Friday, July 30, at ArtStage Performing Arts Center from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. (held offsite due the Theatre’s ongoing expansion project), located at 801 Maplewood Drive, Suite 22A, in Jupiter. Sign in begins at 5:30 p.m.

Performers are asked to bring a headshot and resume and prepare 16 bars of a song in the style of the show. Performers should bring sheet music; an accompanist will be provided. Any candidates unable to attend in person may email a photo, resume and video with a song and full body slate (video introduction) to seasonauditions@jupitertheatre.org with the subject “Jersey Boys Fan Club Audition.”

Actors must be available for all performances (eight shows per week, including Wednesday matinees), rehearsals, tech rehearsals and previews. Actors will be unpaid but will be eligible to receive Equity Membership Candidate Program (EMC) points, which will count toward eventual membership in the Actors’ Equity Association union.

“As the largest regional theatre in the southern half of the U.S., we are committed to offering exceptional performance opportunities to the next generation of actors whenever we can,” said Andrew Kato, the Theatre’s producing artistic director and chief executive. “This is a fantastic opportunity for young actors to train and perform alongside professionals in a large-scale hit musical. This unique production will go down in history as an audience favorite for years to come, and I’m proud that our local youth will be able to say they were part of it.”

A 2005 jukebox musical with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe and book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, Jersey Boys tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons and features a smash hit score spanning two decades of hits. Chronicling the struggles and triumphs of making it big, this Broadway sensation is a treat for all ages.
