SENSORY FRIENDLY PERFORMANCES

A Sensory Friendly performance is a live-theatre production that welcomes individuals with sensory needs, including people on the autism spectrum, as well as first-time theatregoers and young children. This specific performance is modified to allow for patron movement; staff and actors are trained to accommodate patron needs, and all patrons are welcome to experience theater in a safe, non-judgmental environment.

Environmental adjustments to create a friendly, supportive environment, as well as alterations to the performance, include:

*The house lights will remain dimmed during the performance, rather than completely off
*The intensity of lighting and sound effects will be reduced
*A staffed quiet area will be available in the lobby for children who need to take a break from the show
*There will be a relaxed and inclusive atmosphere where patrons can feel comfortable during the performance and enter or exit the theater during the performance, with the assistance of ushers
*Tablets and smartphones will be permitted to help non-verbal audience members communicate
