Photo Flash: Stars of JERSEY BOYS, MDQ, VEGAS!, ROCK OF AGES and More Join 'Cast Party' in Vegas

On Wednesday, October 9, Jim Caruso and Billy Stritch took their freewheeling open mic night, Cast Party, to The Smith Center in Las Vegas. It was the musical duo's fifth time celebrating the always-extraordinary talent pool in Sin City. Scroll down for photos from the concert!

Stars of Jersey Boys, Million Dollar Quartet, Vegas! The Show, Rock of Ages, Dancing Queen, and Fantasy were all on hand, as well as "American Idol" finalist Jasmine Trias, Statosphere superstar Frankie Moreno, Tropicana headliner Skye Dee Miles, comic Geechy Guy, high school sensation Tommy Ward, operatic songstress Isabella Ivy, Belgian vocalist Pascale Elia, and Miss Teen Nevada Ellie Smith.

As it does in its rollicking weekly Birdland incarnation in New York City, the Party continued into the wee hours, with the packed house enjoying impromptu performances of show tunes, standards, original material, rock and pop tunes.

Rachel Smith from "More Access" on Fox-5 TV in Vegas explained, "Imagine if Ed Sullivan and Jimmy Kimmel threw a hip house party and some of their famous and most talented friends dropped by! That's Cast Party!"
