Las Vegas Sun’s Becky Bosshart reports that on Tuesday afternoon, JERSEY BOYS Las Vegas cast members Erich Bergen and Jeff Leibow gave a crash course in acting to some high school students who are participating in a film project that will take them to the red carpet of the CineVegas Film Festival this summer.

The students are members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas and were chosen for the five-week long film workshop because of their interest in acting. Each week, the students, ranging in age from 13 to 16, were given a lesson in filmmaking with the CineVegas Clubhouse, the festival’s outreach program.

“Learning from people who are doing it professionally is the best training you can possibly get, better than any university or college,” said Erich Bergen, who plays Bob Gaudio in the musical based on the lives of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.

He and Jeff Leibow, who plays Nick Massi, implored the young actors to remember that confidence is key, and to be confident you have to be prepared.
