Rider’s Senior Year Experience is sponsoring a trip on Friday, Feb. 24, for Broadway lovers to experience the rags-to-riches story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons in Jersey Boys.
According to the show’s website, Jersey Boys is the story of “four blue-collar kids working their way from the streets of Newark to the heights of stardom.” The musical follows the entire journey that was the Four Seasons’ career.
Jersey Boys opened on Broadway in 2005 and has since received critical acclaim and multiple awards, including the 2006 Tony Award for Best Musical.
Although it takes place in the 1960s and follows one of the most successful rock ’n’ roll groups of the time, audiences of all ages can appreciate the engaging musical soundtrack.
For $30, students are supplied with transportation to and from the theater and a ticket to the 8 p.m. show. Tickets have been on sale since Jan. 30 at the Student Recreation Center Ticket Booth, according to Rider’s alumni website.
