Turning the Clocks Back with Jersey Boys

Last week History Museum at the Castle had a great post about Appleton back in 1962 when the musical Jersey Boys takes place. It made me wonder, what else was happening?

As Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons hit the airwaves with “Sherry” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” President John F. Kennedy was leading the country through the Cuban missile crisis, John Glenn was orbiting the earth, a new vaccine promised to prevent polio, and an illustrator named Andy Warhol was stirring up the art world with “Campbell’s Soup Cans.” 

What was life like for everyone else? The average American earned $5,556 a year, lived in a house worth $12,500 and dreamed about filling up a Chevy 409 with gas at 28 cents a gallon. 

The Post-Crescent’s review said, “Jersey Boys is like being in a time machine,” and this week is your last chance to experience this Broadway hit at the Fox Cities P.A.C. Visit foxcitiespac.com or call the Center’s ticket office at (920) 730-3760 today to book your trip back in time!
