The Omaha Community Playhouse, in partnership with Autism Action Partnership, will host a sensory-friendly performance of A Christmas Carol on Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m.

This special performance is designed to create an experience that is welcoming to those with autism spectrum disorders, sensory sensitivities and other special needs. Accommodations for this performance will include:

• House lights will remain on at a low level in the theatre throughout the performance.
• Off-stage volunteers will raise glow sticks one minute prior to potentially triggering events in the production such as loud noises, bright lighting, strobe lighting, etc.
• Sensory kits will be available for those attending.
• Designated quiet zones will be available in the lobby areas outside of the theatre throughout the performance.

Those attending our sensory-friendly performance may experience some talking and movement from audience members throughout the performance.

The Omaha Community Playhouse strives to create performing arts experiences that are enjoyable for all members of our community. If you would like additional information on our sensory-friendly performance or other accommodations, please contact the OCP Box Office at (402) 553-0800.

It just isn’t Christmas without A Christmas Carol! Experience Omaha’s favorite holiday tradition as Ebenezer Scrooge takes us on a life-changing journey to discover the true meaning of Christmas. Filled with stunning Victorian costumes, festive music and crisp, wintry sets, A Christmas Carol is a beautiful reminder of the power of redemption and the generosity that lies at the heart of the Christmas holiday.
