His Broadway credits include: CarouselHello, Dolly!Cats (Mungojerrie), On The townNewsies (OBC), Bye Bye BirdieHow the Grinch Stole Christmas!, and The Boy From OzThe DBP cast performed two production numbers, received feedback, and participated in a discussion with Jess regarding his take on Newsies and his experience with the show. Jess gave great advice regarding the entertainment industry and encouraged every student to be fearlessly individual both on and off stage. This inspiring experience left the DBP cast & crew of Newsies ready to head into tech week and “Seize the Day” together.
