Dear Evan Hansen and Kendra Scott Are Doing an Epic Partnership
Dear Evan Hansen is officially in the theatres, and we couldn't be more excited!
The musical film was directed by Stephen Chbosky of The Perks of Being a Wallflower and features songs by the same songwriters featured in The Greatest Showman and La La Land. Dear Evan Hansen is not for the light-hearted and tackles mental health in a light we've never seen before. Jewelry brand Kendra Scott wanted to show their support, and they gave back in a big way. Keep reading to learn all about how Kendra Scott is working with Dear Evan Hansen.
If you're unfamiliar with Dear Evan Hansen, watch the trailer below for a bit more insight. Basically, it's about a loner high school kid, played by Ben Platt, and his struggles with mental health. After a fellow student takes his own life, Evan is thrust into the spotlight and put on a journey to his own self-discovery.
Dear Evan Hansen isn't a happy-go-lucky musical by any means, which is what makes it stand out so much. The musical tackles issues like mental health, stress and anxiety in teens in such a beautiful and artistic way. Kendra Scott gifted 400 tickets to the movie to viewers across the country so that they could experience the film themselves.
Kendra Scott is a brand that's super passionate about giving back, and has partnerships with Active Minds, NAMI and The Jed Foundation. We love to see brands standing up for the real issues going on in our current world, and are amazed that Kendra Scott pledged a $100,000 grant to The Jed Foundation's High School program. We don't know about you, but we plan on heading over to the movie theatre asap to see Dear Evan Hansen.
