On Saturday September 30th Student Support Services held a cultural trip to see the official Broadway tour of Michael Jackson the musical. They traveled to the Belk Theatre in Charlotte, NC. The Michael Jackson musical was nominated for a Grammy Award for the Best Musical Theater Album. The musical is about Michael Jackson also known as the King of pop’s creative side, his signature moves, how he became a child star and featured 25 of his biggest hits. I felt like this show was fantastic. The dancing and singing were
I also spoke to Heather Pennington who is the administrative associate for student support services. She oversaw planning the trip who not only got to travel on a charter bus to watch the musical but also enjoyed a meal at Zappata’s Mexican restaurant. She said learning about Michael Jackson and the experience of the restaurant are two great ways this was chosen as a cultural trip. She said she felt the trip would be fun and his music is fun, and students won’t be bored, and you get a good meal. She also said she is still a Michael Jackson fan after all these years. I found out about this trip at the Student Support Services office and additional information in an email. Be sure to stay informed because you won’t want to miss the next trip, this one was amazing!
