He’s a little surly on the outside, but we always knew Piff the Magic Dragon was a big softie on the inside.
The Flamingo Las Vegas headliner and proud America’s Got Talent loser is giving educators a break early this school year, offering up free tickets to his show for teachers and school support staff through September 30.
The deal is not limited to Clark County School District teachers, but they’re among those that could use a laugh while enduring another school year hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, the school district is being sued over the policy requiring students and school employees to wear masks in school regardless of vaccination status.
Add to that a substitute teacher shortage that’s forced teachers to work without time off to ensure there is enough staff in classrooms. The school district is trying to address the shortage by offering a $1,000 stipend to licensed substitute teachers that works at least 15 days during the first quarter.
So teachers have enough problems. They shouldn’t have to reach further into their wallets to buy tickets to see a man in a dragon costume crack jokes onstage with “The World’s Only Magic Performing Chihuahua™.” Yeah, that’s right, we didn’t forget you Mr. Piffles!
Piff the Magic Dragon performs Thursday through Monday at Flamingo Las Vegas. Educators can request up to four tickets to the show, and all reservations must be made 48 hours in advance. You can request your tickets online or get more information by calling 855-234-7469.
