Jersey Boys Coming to Calgary, AB Canada in June 2012

Jersey Boys musical is coming to Calgary, Alberta Canada next year June 2012. Jersey Boys Canadian production starts performances at Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium from June 28 to July 16, 2012.

Jersey Boys is presented in Canada by Dancap Productions Inc., a Toronto based company dedicated to producing and presenting the best of Broadway-style theatre in Canada.

Jersey Boys tells the rags-to-riches story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, who overcame tremendous odds to make it big in the early days of rock and roll. On Thursday night, four actors who have starred in various productions of Jersey Boys hit the stage at the Jubilee Auditorium to give invited guests a taste of the production. Along with the musical interlude, there was a Q&A session with the actors, some yummy appetizers and a brief talk from Aubrey Dan, founder of Dancap Productions. Aubrey and his wife Marla (who is from Alberta) have also left their marks on the country as philanthropists, donating more than $20 million to a variety of health and education charities. (Read more about Aubrey by clicking here.)

It was great to hear the passion in Aubrey’s voice Thursday night, as he talked about his desire to bring more theatre offerings to Canadians. That passion led Aubrey to start Dancap Productions in 2007, which resulted in a successful two-year run of Jersey Boys in Toronto (along with a variety of other plays along the way.) Now, he’s taking the show on the road and that means Calgary will host a touring production of Jersey Boys next summer. Info on the Calgary show and tickets.
