Urban Initiatives is dedicated to taking program participants on cultural outings and field trips. Luckily for us, the Blue Man Group is dedicated to giving back to the Chicago community and generously donated 100 tickets to their show on November 12. Program participants and parents from Goethe School, Jenner Academy, and Libby Elementary traveled by bus to experience the spectacular show. of music, comedy, and multimedia. Thank you to the Blue Man Group for your generosity and providing our participants with an experience that they will never forget!
In total, 90 program participants and chaperones attended the field trip and they all had rave reviews. One boy from Cabrini-Green said on the way out of the theater, “I wish that show would never end. Can we please come back tomorrow?”OSPD Director Jose Feliciano and Urban Initiatives’ mom Katina Haley were able to be a part of the show! It was a phenomenal experience.
We could not imagine a more perfect cultural experience for the youth that we serve. The kids were fully engaged, smiling, laughing, cheering, throwing toilet paper, and most importantly simply enjoying the opportunity to be kids. Thank you again to the Blue Man Group and the Briar Street Theatre for an amazing cultural outing.
