Military Discount Announced for “blu”

For the remaining performances of “blu,” a Military discount is now available. Simply show your Military ID at the Box Office and receive an adult ticket, normally $16, for only $12.

Due to blu’s subject matter and story line, in which a non-traditional family struggles after the death of their eldest son in Iraq, show director, Ryan Whitfield, and The Weekend Theater Board wanted to make this special offer available as a small way of saying Thank You to the men and women of the armed forces who serve and protect us on a daily based. We hope to see you there!
