This show with its all-South African 19 member cast, 10-piece band and crew were last seen performing for eleven-weeks in Singapore, where it received critical acclaim, rave reviews and standing ovations. The cast sang their way into the hearts of Singapore audiences, immediately establishing itself as one of the most critically-acclaimed productions in Singapore with The Straits Times raving "... tunes so infectious they should be classified as a health hazard. Jersey Boys is a class act … ".

The ensemble features a host of multi-talented local performers who together with the band and crew worked closely during rehearsals with a joint South African and visiting top-notch New York based global creative team responsible for staging Jersey Boys throughout the world. The entire company spent invaluable time fine-tuning their roles with Jersey Boys Broadway director, Des McAnuff.
