JERSEY BOYS will be playing The Civic Theatre in Auckland from April 10-May 17 and Bridget Jones has a marvelous interview with the Dion Bilios, the young actor who will be playing Frankie Valli in the hit musical. Here’s a preview:

It’s the story of four boys from the wrong side of the tracks making it big. But for the star of Jersey Boys, it’s the grittiness of the show that makes it a role of a lifetime.

Dion Bilios has just started rehearsals for his role as Frankie Valli – the little guy with the high-pitched voice who, along with The Four Seasons, invented a unique sound and sold more than 175 million records all before they were 30.

Jersey Boys has been a smash hit around the world, with more than 14 million people watching the story of the four blue collar boys, with chequered pasts, drag themselves up to become pop sensations.

And Bilios says when he saw it for the first time in his native Australia he knew it was a show he wanted to be a part of.

“As soon as I saw it, I wanted to be in it – it’s the role of a lifetime. I love the music and the show itself – the acting, the story -it’s just so exciting as an actor to get into. There is just so much grittiness, there’s a bit of comedy and there are laughs – there’s a whole variety of stuff.”
