"Even when the dark comes crashing through, when you need a friend to carry you and when you're broken on the ground...you will be found.*- Dear Evan Hansen
2017 Tony award winner, Rachel Bay Jones, sent the Project Connect students at IES Nacka a special message of love and inclusion. Rachel Bay Jones portrays the mother, Heidi, in the popular Tony award musical Dear Evan Hansen.
The musical is about a young boy who has social anxiety and his path to self acceptance. Ms. Jones heard about IES Nacka's Project Connect group through her friend, Mr. Högkvist, and she wanted to reach out to the group to let them know how special they all are. Unfortunately, the sound did not come through on the message....so the students did a great job of lip reading!
