Date: 06/24/2010

Amanda Sant, from Innisfil, Ontario is the one millionth customer at Toronto’s JERSEY BOYS.  At an onstage presentation following the Wednesday, June 23 matinee, a very surprised Ms. Sant was presented with a prize package of a trip to New York using Porter Airlines and tickets to see JERSEY BOYS on Broadway.

After over 750 performances and almost two years on stage at the Toronto Centre for the Arts, the one millionth ticket to JERSEY BOYS was sold to Ms. Sant who took her mother to the matinee.

Aubrey Dan, President of Dancap Productions today said, “Audiences have embraced JERSEY BOYS from the start and it is thrilling to see that after almost two years in Toronto, audiences continue to celebrate this incredible story and unbelievable music.” 

JERSEY BOYS tells the story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, following their unlikely rags-to-riches rise from the streets of Newark to the heights of stardom. How did four blue-collar kids become one of the greatest successes in pop music history?  You ask four guys, and you get four different answers.

Since its 2005 debut, JERSEY BOYS has become one of Broadway’s biggest success stories playing to consistently sold-out crowds and receiving remarkable reviews. The Broadway production is about to celebrate five years, the first national tour is still setting records, and Australia, London, and Las Vegas are also enjoying extended runs.

Brown, Matt Cassidy, Jade Elliott, Élodie Gillett, Bryan Hindle, Victoria Lamond, Aaron MacKenzie, Adrian Marchuk, W. Joseph Matheson, Timothy Sell, Alison Smyth, Grant Tilly, Cleopatra Williams and Shawn Wright.
