This marked our first performance at Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach, FL. It also closed our Florida tour for 2012. And it was a GREAT way to end the tour! Everyone at the Peabody made our time there easy and fun. Load in, set up, and tech rehearsal were all ahead of schedule. But it was the audience that made the evening perfect. We had a large enthusiastic crowd of all ages ready to have a good time. Volunteers were excited to be on stage and their energy really moved the show along. In the lobby afterwards, I had the chance to meet literally hundreds of people. It was the perfect ending to a perfect tour!
Earlier in the week, Kevin Poor and Jill Jaquet had mad arrangements for me to visit a very special school in Daytona Beach. The Monarch Academy is a center that targets children on the autism spectrum. I was able to meet with the teachers in the morning and then work with the students. I love these kids and, more importantly, I’m thrilled that the people at Peabody Auditorium are so willing to explore things in the community that can have a big impact!
THANKS TO EVERYONE AT PEABODY FOR A GREAT TIME IN DAYTONA BEACH!
