I finally had the pleasure of seeing our student Jackson Demott Hill in Finding Neverland this weekend and it was SO GOOD! The show itself was magical and the experience of seeing Jackson up there left me breathless! I was giddy and teary-eyed the whole time ūüôā After the show I¬†met him outside¬†and got a chance to watch him sign autographs for his hoards of fans! And then he took me on a backstage tour of the sets, props, stage, etc and was an excellent tour guide! Overall, the experience was just fantastic and you should all go see it!

Right now, we are only getting his schedule about a week out from the performances but I will try to post them to the Wingspan Facebook page as we get them so you can try to get tickets to a show he will be in. Below are some photos of the evening!
