IN COLLABORATION WITH UNITED BLOOD SERVICES
HERBERGER THEATER LOBBY
September 10, 2018
The Herberger Theater Center will host a community blood drive inside the Center Stage Lobby as part of a promotional campaign for Sweeney Todd, the upcoming co-production with Arizona Broadway Theatre. Blood donors will be provided with a voucher for one free ticket to Sweeney Todd, An American in Paris, or The Addams Family. Donors should enter through the HTC Box Office located at 222 East Monroe Street in Phoenix. Tony Edgerton, the lead of Sweeney Todd, will be making an appearance in costume during the blood drive. TLC Café will be providing meat pies for donors in the refreshment area.
“As a non-profit organization, our goal is always to give back to the community,” said Mark Mettes, CEO & President of HTC. “What better way to promote a show like this than with a blood drive that can benefit local hospitals? Everyone who gives their own blood for the cause can be our guest for this iconic musical production of Sweeney Todd that is sure to get your blood pumping!”
The need for blood locally remains constant, and donations are needed to offset summer blood shortages. Donors are encouraged to eat a meal prior to giving blood and drink plenty of water. Photo ID is required at donation time. All 16- and 17-year-olds must have parent or guardian permission to donate. All donors must pass the vital signs and health history examinations given prior to donation. Interested donors can contact the Herberger Theater at 602.254.7399.
