    TORONTO, Aug. 25 /CNW/ - Due to popular demand, Dodger Theatricals and
Dancap Productions Inc., are pleased to announce additional Toronto
performances for the smash hit musical JERSEY BOYS, now playing at the Toronto
Centre for the Arts (5040 Yonge Street) through November 9, 2008.

Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. It's a journey of how a group

invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide - all before
they were thirty.
