We’re looking forward to attending the official opening night function, and the Queensland premiere of 4 Seasons in 1 Night starring Irish-born Bobby Fox, at The J Theatre.


You have just two chances to catch this fantastic performance from one of our top musical theatre stars…well, if you’re lucky, there might just be an additional 5pm performance on the Saturday. But don’t wait for it to be announced or you might miss out altogether!


4 Seasons In 1 Night stars stage powerhouse, Bobby Fox, renowned for his critically acclaimed performance of Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys. Charting his experience with the show, from his first (not-so-successful) audition, to the final, exhilarating bow, 4 Seasons In 1 Night celebrates the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in an evening packed with anecdotes and cheeky secrets that will take you behind the scenes of one of Australia’s most successful stage shows of all time.


Bobby was handpicked by the man himself to play the role of Frankie Valli in the smash hit musical Jersey Boys, playing to sold out seasons in Melbourne & Sydney. Following his appearance at the Noosa Long Weekend, Bobby continues his role as Spring, the eldest Tap brother, in the hit musical Hot Shoe Shuffle. The show goes to Sydney in July.


Hailing from Longford Ireland, Bobby’s career highlights in include; 4 times Irish Dance Champion and touring with Irish productions such as Riverdance, Dancing on Dangerous Ground (principal understudy) and To Dance on the Moon (principal dancer).
