Blue Man Group Performing at SC07

Reno, NV – October 4, 2007 ––  Thursday evening’s social event for SC07 technical program attendees will be a special, one-time performance of the Blue Man Group at the Grand Sierra Resort on Thursday, November 15.  Blue Man Group is best known for their wildly popular theatrical shows and concerts that combine music, comedy and multimedia theatrics to produce a totally unique form of entertainment.

As any fan will tell you --“You just have to see it!”

The Blue Man Group performance will be held in the Grand Theatre from 7:25 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  There will also be a reception in the Grand Sierra Ballroom, starting at 6:00 p.m., with cocktails and snacks, followed by a buffet dinner back in the ballroom after the performance.  Entry into the Ballroom will require a technical program badge or social event wristband. Additional buses will transport attendees from the Conference Center to the Grand Sierra Resort starting at 5:45 p.m., as well as regular hotel shuttles.    

Entry into the Grand Sierra Theatre will require a separate wristband.  Attendees can visit the Blue Man Group Table at the Conference Center starting at 3 p.m. or the Grand Sierra Ballroom starting at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, the day of the performance, and show a technical program badge to obtain a wristband. Tickets for non-technical program attendees will be available for purchase at the SC07 Conference Store for $100.  Due to limited seating for the performance wristbands will be required for entrance into the theatre and doors will shut promptly at 7:25 p.m.  The performance will also be available for viewing on two screens in the Grand Sierra Ballroom, with food and beverage service continuing (no wristband required).
