BLUE MAN GROUP ANNOUNCES 3RD ANNUAL GRANT A GIFT AUTISM FOUNDATION BENEFIT PERFORMANCE
Blue Man Group® at Luxor Hotel and Casino welcomes its third annual Grant a Gift Autism Foundation benefit performance on Sunday, June 11 at 4 p.m. For every $36 ticket sold for the performance, Blue Man Group will donate $18 to the foundation.
For the sensory-friendly show, guests can expect slight modifications to the performance including reduced sound and light levels at various moments. Additionally, earplugs will be made available upon request. The Blue Men will limit the amount of direct audience interaction and keep their approach to the audience more subdued. Blue Man Group will also create calming environments in the theater's lobby for families seeking a break from the excitement.
All domestic Blue Man Group productions will be hosting sensory-friendly shows suitable for children, adults and families affected by autism spectrum disorders on select dates throughout the year. "We've heard from many families affected by autism that their children responded to the Blue Man character in a very moving way. We are thrilled to provide a safe and welcoming environment and are often quite moved by the emotional response to the show," says Phil Stanton, Blue Man Group co-founder.
Sponsorships for the special performance are also available and individuals and/or companies interested can contact Malina Akerman, Grant a Gift Autism Foundation's event director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 702.564.2453. Click here to view sponsorship packages.
