Our dancers were so thrilled to be able to one; go to the show, two; be able to see some of the behind the scenes props, set, etc., three; to be able to meet and talk with Kennedy after the show, sign ticket stubs and programs, four; to have a very energetic, real life experience of what auditioning for a show like American Idiot would be like!” - H.
