A TOP tribute act, which is set to take audiences on a trip down memory lane, will be appearing at The Playhouse, Weston, this month.

The Ragdolls will be performing A Tribute To The Jersey Boys on July 21 as part of their UK tour.

The Ragdolls are four sensational harmony vocalists who recreate the magic of Frankie Valli And The Four Seasons and tell the remarkable rise to stardom of one of the most successful bands in pop music history.

Frankie Valli shot to fame in 1962 as the lead singer of The Four Seasons and he still has a big following some 50 years later.

His profile is soaring again with the worldwide award-winning box office hit musical Jersey Boys currently smashing records in The West End.

The Ragdolls will tell Frankie’s story from the hit Sherry back in 1962, focussing on his time in the 1960s and 1970s as both a solo artist and as lead vocalist with the Four Seasons.

Polished and professional, The Ragdolls will get audiences singing along to hits such as Beggin’, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, (December ‘63) Oh What A Night, Walk Like A Man, and Big Girls Don’t Cry.

The show will start at 7.30pm. Tickets, priced £16, are available from the box office on 01934 645544 or via www.theplayhouse.co.uk.

The Mercury has teamed up with The Playhouse to offer three readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to the show.
