Kids Flock To See The Blue Man Group

ORLANDO, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The spectacular shows of The Blue Man Group are very popular among adults, but now kids are becoming fans of the men in blue too.

That’s the word from Chris Wink, one of the original founders of The Blue Man Group who says the most surprising thing about the show’s increasing popularity is that lately, tiny tots are starting to attend the shows more than ever.

Wink says tons of school buses have been flocking in with teachers who bring their classes to the production for field trips.

Says Wink: “The teachers are bringing the kids because they want them to be inspired by the Blue Men to be free, crazy, creative, and different. The kids love the noise and chaos of the show and at the same time, they relate to the Blue Men because they have adolescent, naive qualities just like a child. It’s a perfect fit.”

And while Wink believes the shows encourage kids to be artistic and unique, he hopes the tykes still get a good laugh while learning.

He adds, “We want kids to be entertained and truly enjoy the madness!”

The Blue Man Group begins their latest show at the Universal Orlando Resort on Wednesday (June 6).
