Lauren DeCierdo, Kara Tremel and Denise Payne are the only females in the cast of "Jersey Boys."

Together the three women play 52 different characters in the show, and they are an integral part of the storyline about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.

"I think when people come see the show, they don't know the story of the Four Seasons," Payne said. "But they obviously know the music."
Payne believes "Jersey Boys" is a deeper look into the story of the Four Seasons, which often surprises most audiences.

Tremel describes "Jersey Boys" as magical. She said there is something special about the combination of the classic music, the storyline, the direction, the set and the lights.

"It all comes together to make something absolutely magical," Tremel said.

DeCierdo said that each actor is used, named and directed in such a way that every member of the ensemble has a purpose and is important to the production.

"I've been doing this for three years and I'm not sick of it; I absolutely love it," Tremel said. "And I'm proud of it, proud to be a part of it."
