The West End production of Jersey Boys, playing at the Prince Edward Theatre, will offer a special benefit performance on Wednesday, November 17. The event will raise money for BBC Children in Need, which provides services for disadvantaged children and young people throughout the U.K. BBC London radio personalities Gaby Roslin, Paul Ross, Vanessa Feltz, and Danny Baker will serve as hosts for the event.

The musical is based on the life story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, and chronicles the lives of a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks who became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. The show features dozens of the group's popular hits, including "Walk Like a Man," "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Oh What a Night," and "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You."

The company features Ryan Molloy (Valli), Stephen Ashfield (Bob Gaudio), Jon Boydon (Tommy DeVito), Eugene McCoy (Nick Massi), along with Simon Adkins (Bob Crewe), Jade Westaby (Mary Delgado), Mark Carroll (Donnie/Knuckles), Jye Frasca (Joe Pesci), Charlie Bull (Lorraine), Michelle Francis (Francine), Tee Jaye (Barry), Stuart Milligan (Gyp Decarlo), Joseph Prouse (Norm Waxman) and James Winter (Hank). Scott Monello serves as an alternate to Molloy in the role of Valli.
