This coming September, the Walton Arts Center is thrilled to host the premiere engagement of the first-ever BLUE MAN GROUP National Theatrical Tour. As E! Entertainment News exclaims, “BLUE MAN GROUP is what every live performance aspires to be.”
In anticipation of the September 2nd opening at Baum Walker Hall, BLUE MAN GROUP cast and crew will gather alongside the Walton Arts Center team in early August for rehearsals and technical preparations within the theatre. Throughout the month, these two teams will ensure all elements of the production – scenery, sound, lighting, costumes, and makeup – come together to produce an unforgettable night of entertainment. It promises to be a very busy but very exciting month!
Blue Man Group is best known for its shows that combine music, comedy and multimedia theatrics to produce a totally unique form of entertainment in a blissful party atmosphere. Blue Man Group can currently be seen in cities around the world – New York, Boston, Chicago, Orlando, Las Vegas, Tokyo, Berlin, and in a European Tour – and is now adding many more cities to the roster with the launch of the U.S. National Tour in Fayetteville.
Although it is impossible to describe, audiences agree that Blue Man buy prescription drugs online without prescription Group is an intensely exciting show that appeals to people of all ages and cultural backgrounds. Theatergoers are sure to enjoy the lights, colors and spectacle elements of the show, while even the most hardened theatergoer will engage with the deeper messages beneath the wildly fun theatrics. Accompanied by a live band that plays original music recalling ancient tribal rhythms, the show is a provocative journey of the senses.
This brand-new production will feature many original elements to complement classic Blue Man moments.
