Sensory-friendly performances throughout our 2016-2017 season!
We are pleased to announce that we will offer sensory-friendly performances for all of our shows this year, to provide an opportunity for patrons on the autism spectrum and their families to enjoy live theatre. During a sensory-friendly performance, house lights are kept on, sound levels are lower, audience members are free to talk and leave their seats during the performance, a designated quiet area is provided, outside snacks are permitted, and audience numbers are kept smaller, to offer an experience that will be both enjoyable and comfortable.
Sensory-friendly performances are sponsored by University Health System.
