“Blue Man Group is honored to host one of the only sensory-friendly performances in Las Vegas,” said Mary Grisolano, regional general manager of Blue Man Group. “The Blue Men have a special connection to individuals on the autism spectrum and it is amazing to see that connection come to life at this show. We are grateful to have Grant a Gift as a local partner – their work helps so many families in our community and beyond.”

Prior to the show, The Smith Center led a modified drum circle for children enrolled in Grant a Gift Autism Foundation programs. Guests were also provided with complimentary popcorn, sunglasses and glowsticks to enjoy during the show. All attendees were welcomed into the theater and enjoyed opening remarks from Terri Janison of Grant a Gift Autism Foundation. Following the sensory-friendly show, guests were treated to a special meet and greet with the Blue Men and Band members.

“For the past four years, Grant a Gift Autism Foundation has had so much fun planning this event with Blue Man Group,” said Terri Janison, chief executive officer of Grant a Gift Autism Foundation. “Our families don’t always have the opportunity to experience these types of activities, but Blue Man Group has made a safe and judgement-free environment for everyone to enjoy. The donation they provided will enhance our efforts to assist children and families in southern Nevada living with autism.”

Slight modifications were made to the performance including reduced sound and light levels at various moments and limited amounts of direct audience interaction by the Blue Men. There were also calming environments in the theater’s lobby for families seeking a break from the excitement.
