Help Bring Lynne back to Neverland this Summer

Thank you for expressing interest in helping to bring Lynne Jackson back to Massachusetts the last two weeks of July 2023. Our goal is to bring her back from her new home in California for our final Neverland Musical. Lynne would assume the roles of musical directing assistant as well as piano player during our /tech week and performances' of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Director Andy Diskes estimated the cost to hire Lynne for her services as well as cover her expenses, would be $3,500.

Supportive Parents and Alumni have started a fundraiser selling Gourmet Popcorn that lasts 4 days. (From March 1 - 4) Some supporters reached out and said they prefer to donate directly to the goal without purchasing popcorn so we created this fundraiser.

If this is you or you missed the Popcorn Fundraiser and would like to support bringing Lynne to Massachusetts, you're in the right spot!

Some quick background information: Lynne and her husband of 50 years, Michael Palter, co-musically directed dozens of Neverland Theatre musicals over the course of 12 years, becoming an integral part of our Neverland family. Sadly Mike passed away a year and a half ago, leading Lynne to move to California to be with her son, daughter-in-law and two adorable grandchildren.

When director Andy Diskes decided several months ago to move on from Neverland Theatre after 32 years, he and a supportive group of parents, couldn't fathom producing a final musical featuring many Alums from years back, without Lynne by our side. So this is where friends and supporters come in.

Because Covid has done a number on many artistic organizations, Neverland doesn't have the extra funds needed to bring Lynne back. This is where you come in!

So if you purchased popcorn or made a small donation via GoFundMe, thank you very much for your support! We can't imagine what joy will come when Lynne arrives.

If you prefer to donate another way:

By Mail:
*20 East St., Middleton, MA 01949 (Check made payable to Neverland Theatre)

@NeverlandTheatre30 (last four digits of phone is 8832 which you sometime need to verify it's the correct account.)

For questions or to let us know to be on the look out for a donation, you can contact Andy directly at [email redacted].

Thank you for helping to bring Lynne back to Neverland this summer. Please try to stop in to see Lynne while she is here. We would all love to see you!
