Jersey Boys Tour

As the critically acclaimed musical “Jersey Boys” celebrates its 1000th show at the Palazzo in Las Vegas, the cast will commemorate the musical’s outstanding feat by giving back to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Las Vegas through the Walk Like a Man Shoe Drive happening on August 28, Saturday.

Fans of the musical who would like to participate in the shoe drive should come to the Palazzo from 12 noon to 5 PM with a brand new pair of shoes to be donated to the drive in exchange for a complimentary ticket to the 6:30 PM show of the musical on August 28.

Only 1,000 tickets will be up for grabs in the drive and each donor can donate a maximum of 2 pairs of shoes to avail a maximum of 2 complimentary tickets for the show.  After the 6:30 PM performance, the “Jersey Boys” cast, made up of Deven May, Jeff Leibow, Peter Saide, Travis Cloer and Rick Faugno, will personally hand over the shoes to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Las Vegas which has eight facilities in the city catering to about 13,000 less privileged individuals aged 5 to 18.

In a statement, “Jersey Boys”  star Travis Cloer, who shares the role of “Frankie Valli” with co-star Rick Faugno, considers the partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Las Vegas “an honor” as he owes a lot to the city especially with the musical’s lengthy run allowing it to reach the 1000-show feat.  He also sees the shoe drive as a small stepping stone in improving the lives of the youth, “these kids are going to make Vegas even better in the future, and it’s the least we can do to help them stay a step ahead”, Cloer added.

Catch “Jersey Boys” at the Palazzo every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday at 7 PM and every Tuesday and Saturday at 6:30 PM and 9:30 PM.
