Virtual Performance:


I just want to let you know that it was wonderful to have David join us to do his solo plays for our PK–2 & 3–5 students. The students not only enjoyed the show, but his message was so powerful. I am sure that many of our students will remember his performance. I even had some teachers welling up with tears, especially during his performance of A Little Potato & Hard to Peel. As I looked into the faces of our students during the conclusion of his performances, I could see the impact of his message was hitting home for many. This was certainly reinforced by the questions asked during the Q&A part after the performance. I am impressed as to how David has taken his life story and turned it into different performances that not only provide entertainment, but that also bring a powerful message to the audience in the end. Thank you so much!
