We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate our 75th Anniversary with local talent Benj Pasek of the Golden Globe®-winning and Oscar®, Tony® and Emmy®-nominated songwriting team Pasek and Paul, creators of the Broadway smash Dear Evan Hansen. In addition to his success on Broadway, Pasek just received two Academy Award® nominations for his songs in the also-nominated film, La La Land. Pasek hails from Ardmore, PA and his father, Jeff Pasek, is a former Chair of the JEVS Human Services Board of Directors. Says Benj of this event, “My family has been a part of JEVS and feels a responsibility to give back.”
Joining Pasek will be the celebrated star of Dear Evan Hansen, Ben Platt. You might remember Platt from his roles in Pitch Perfect I and II, as well as his acclaimed role in Broadway’s The Book of Mormon.
Truly entertainment worthy of a once-in-75-years event! For tickets or sponsorship information, click here.
