There will be short audience Q&As after each performance.
Face-painted percussion troupe Blue Man Group is bringing its colorful and comedic act to the Tobin Center stage for a three-performance run.

Audiences of all ages can expect a riot of makeshift musical instruments, stunning visuals and immersive audience participation.

Blue Man Group pumps up its percussive repertoire with unlikely and captivating props including paint-covered drums, garbage can lids and PVC pipes, often accompanied by a full band and hundreds of neon lights timed to the music.

Prior to Sunday's 2 p.m. performance, students of St. Mary's Hall will host an interactive science exhibit at no additional charge to audience members. Short audience Q&As with Blue Man Group will follow each performance.

Ticket holders can submit questions in advance via the Tobin's website.

$39.50-$99.50, 8 p.m. Saturday, June 18, 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Sunday, June 19, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624,
