Lafayette native Ryan Strand went from an Off-Broadway tour of Altar Boyz to one of the hottest shows on the road today, the Broadway tour of “Jersey Boys.” The popular musical tells the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Ryan Strand, is part of “The Jersey Boys” cast which is coming to Indianapolis.

Strand is on the swing crew, meaning he has understudied three ensemble members’ roles as well as the role of Frankie Valli. If the actors who play those roles are sick, injured or on vacation, the 26-year-old steps in.
“I have 87 costumes spread out over the four parts,” Strand said. “One ensemble member plays 17 different roles throughout the show.”
Strand will have a homecoming when Jersey Boys comes to downtown Indianapolis’ Murat Theatre, 502 N. New Jersey St., with a run starting Wednesday and going through July 3. He is booked to be in the ensemble during the last week of the show’s Indy run. The week before, he will be on his honeymoon as he will be getting married to Becca Kloha of New York. The nuptials will be in Brown County.
