Jess & Judy: A Tribute to Judy Garland is a concert benefiting the Hilliard Arts Council and the Hilliard Education Foundation which takes place on Saturday, June 11 at 7:00pm at the Hilliard Darby Performing Arts Center. The show stars Hilliard’s own Jessica Grové, a Broadway star, professional theatre educator and consummate entertainer giving tribute to her favorite performing artist. In this blog, Jessica tells us a little about herself and how growing up in a community like Hilliard that supports the arts helped enable living her dream life as a theatre professional.
” I believe that the arts teach us compassion and empathy and are fundamental to the education and healthy development of children and teens.” – Grové
