Jekyll & Hyde Blood Drive: Tuesday, October 9 and Wednesday, October 10; 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.
To celebrate a "bloody" good time, TUTS has partnered with our season sponsor St. Luke's Episcopal Health System to host a blood drive at Hobby Center. Medical technology has provided many life-saving discoveries over the years, but there is still no substitute for blood. In a medical emergency, often the most important element is the availability of blood. Blood donations can help a variety of individuals: trauma victims, surgery patients, premature babies, individuals with anemia, cancer patients and many more. Blood donors on both days will receive a promotional code for discounted tickets to see the show. Visit TUTS.com/Events to learn more about the blood drive.
Pre-show Informance with Frank Wildhorn: Wednesday, October 10; 6:30 - 7:15 p.m. Frank Wildhorn will offer a pre-show informance for theater-goers in Hobby Center's Founder's Club. TUTS Artistic Director Bruce Lumpkin will dialogue with Frank Wildhorn about the development, background and journey of Jekyll & Hyde. This event is free for all October 10 ticket holders.
