To thank Florida teachers for their hard work and dedication to Florida’s students, the Florida Education Foundation and Blue Man Group at Universal Orlando have again joined forces to offer Florida teachers discounted tickets for Blue Man Group performances. Additionally, for every adult ticket purchased, Blue Man Group will donate $2 to the Florida Education Foundation.
“The Florida Education Foundation supports the department’s efforts to help ensure Florida’s 2.7 million students have the greatest chance at lifelong success. We are thrilled that this collaboration will reward our state’s teachers for their invaluable contributions while enabling us to continue our student-focused work.” said Florida Education Foundation Chair Connie Smith.
Beginning April 17, Florida public school teachers can purchase Blue Man Group adult tickets at a discounted rate for performances between June 26 and August 13, 2017.
“Florida’s teachers work hard every day to make sure students have every opportunity for academic success and become the leaders of tomorrow,” said Ola Wawryn, Resident General Manager, Blue Man Group. “We are honored to partner with the Florida Education Foundation in support of our teachers while giving back to education in our great state.”
“As the 2017 Florida Teacher of the Year, I am very excited to work with Blue Man Group and help promote this great cause for our state’s educators,” said Jessica Solano. “The Blue Man show is an inspirational and entertaining convergence of science, technology and the arts. Florida’s teachers work tirelessly in our community and this is a great way to give back to them by offering a discount to attend a great show put on by Blue Man Group.”
To take advantage of this opportunity, educators should visit the Just For Teachers Community for the link to purchase tickets. Tickets can also be purchased at the box office with a pay stub or school name badge proving employment. For questions about this offer, call 407-BLUEMAN (407-258-3626).
