LAS VEGAS (October 19, 2017) – Tickets are now on sale for the Sixth Annual One Night for One Drop imagined by Cirque du Soleil, an extraordinary, one-night-only event created to benefit safe water access programs around the world. Performing exclusively at the Michael Jackson ONE Theatre at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas Friday, March 2, 2018, this year’s production is inspired by the life of GRAMMY®-nominated singer-songwriter Jewel. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit onedrop.org/onenight.
Following the tremendous success of One Night for One Drop 2017, Zumanity performers Nicky and Laetitia Dewhurst will once again serve as the writers and directors of this year’s never-before-seen production. Proceeds from the event will benefit One Drop’s global water efforts as well as educational efforts in the Las Vegas community.
“I’m so excited to be collaborating with Nicky and Laetitia and the talented cast and crew of Cirque du Soleil to tell my story,” said Jewel. “I’m really looking forward to this and doing it for such an amazing cause that is very near and dear to my heart makes it even more meaningful.”
Presented by MGM Resorts International, One Night for One Drop 2018 is inspired by pivotal moments throughout Jewel’s life. The production takes the audience through significant events and makes them relatable by constructing them around popular themes such as family, love, betrayal and the courage to forgive, all while featuring breathtaking performers from Cirque du Soleil and lightening it up with a variety of comedic elements.
Nicky Dewhurst, co-writer and director for One Night for One Drop 2018, said, “We couldn’t be more thrilled to be doing One Night for One Drop again this year. To have the support and story of Jewel has been amazing and we can’t wait to share her beautiful story with an audience.”
Individual, tax-deductible VIP tickets, which include the post-show extravaganza complete with live entertainment, cocktails, food selections and festivities, are available for $1,500. Show-only tickets start at $125. Sponsorship packages, VIP and individual tickets are available at onedrop.org/onenight or by calling 1-844-33-WATER.
