“I loved working with Doug King in ‘Ragtime,’” he said of the director and choreographer for Beef & Boards’ current show: “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” “And I knew that the choreography and songs would be great.”

The production of “Ragtime” took place at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church last year, but that is only one entry on Jacobsen’s quickly-growing resume. He’s performed in multiple productions at the Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette, Booth Tarkington Civic and Jr. Civic in Carmel, as well as Clay Middle School, where he is in sixth grade.

And from Feb. 21 through March 8, he’s on the Beef & Boards stage as part of the Red Choir for “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”

“It’s really fun to work with other people in the theatre community,” the 12-year-old said. “And I like to entertain people.”

All of that is building the foundation for what he hopes will be a professional performing career one day.

Of course, it’s not always easy.

“It can sometimes be challenging to memorize songs and choreography,” hed admitted. “But I love the challenge!”

When he’s not on stage, Jacobsen enjoys playing the alto saxophone in his school band, as well as ping pong and video games. He is the son of Aimee and Allen Jacobsen of Carmel.
