EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Preparation was underway Sunday for a musical called Next To Normal that’s a part of Jacob Ball Wish Fund’s play for charity.
The story centers around a mother who is struggling after the loss of her son. It’s a touching story for the fund’s Executive Director Tiffany Ball, who lost her son six years ago after health complications.
Tiffany told us they do a play every year in his memory.
There is no ticket cost, but they ask for a donation that will benefit students with special needs.
“When Jacob was alive, he was the most joyful, beautiful, had the most beautiful soul, happy person alive,” said Tiffany Ball. “So we just really want to be able to spread his joy for him. So, through this show, we raise money to fund special needs students with things that they might not otherwise get.”
Shows are Tuesday and Wednesday, October 15 and 16 at the Academy of Innovative Studies off Diamond Avenue. Both shows start at 7:30 p.m.
