Sensory-friendly are relaxed performances designed to be welcoming and inclusive for families of individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities, autism, sensory processing disorders or other conditions.
Some performance elements have been changed to accommodate the needs of individuals who are sensitive to over-stimulation that might happen during a fully staged production. This includes softened lighting effects, lowering sound levels and a reduction of sudden movements. Lights are kept higher in the theatre so audience members can see each other. Audience members are free to come and go if need be and there is a “safe room” available during the performance.
Check back later for upcoming sensory friendly events!
Shadow-interpreted theatre utilizes specially trained American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters to perform as “shadows” on stage alongside actors.
