JACK PACKER
Jack Packer (Jeremy Jacobs) is excited to perform the role of Jeremy Jacob and bring a favorite storybook to life. This will be Jack’s third pirating adventure after appearing as Michael in Peter Pan Jr. and Jack/Peter on the Finding Neverland National Tour. You might recognize Jack from shows at Dutch Apple, Fulton Theatre, Sight & Sound, Servant Stage, EPAC, and MPACT. Like Jeremy Jacob, Jack loves to ride roller coasters and hang out at the beach. Jack doesn’t actually play soccer, but he would love to teach the pirates to skimboard! He thanks Lauren for this opportunity to perform again at Dutch Apple and his family for their love and support. ◆ Isaiah 25:1 ◆ @jackryanpacker
