Project Description

Jen’s dream has been to go to Ireland for many years. To make this dream come true, Life Enrichment Coordinator, Hannah, did a little research to bring the Irish culture closer to home. She found that Paramount Theater in Cedar Rapids was presenting a show called the ‘Rockin’ Road to Dublin.’ Jen’s mother, Jan, joined the two as a guest and the ladies left for Cedar Rapids. The trio found their seats and were so pleased at how close they were to the stage! The Rockin’ Road to Dublin is a combination of Irish Dance Performance and a Rock Concert. After the first song was over, Jen turned to Hannah while wiping a tear from her eye and said, “Thank you so much, this is so amazing!” Everyone that knows Jen knows how much she loves music and to sing, so when they performed a rock medley of songs like “Anyway You Want It” and “Eye of the Tiger,” Jen belted out the lyrics as if she were on stage. She clapped the entire time with the biggest smile on her face! After the show, Jen was able to meet the singers and performers. She told them this was her “special night” and thanked them for such a great show.
