Tickets $20 for this performance.

What makes it "sensory-friendly"?
A friendly, supportive environment for families with a loved one with special needs. Adaptations to the performance are slight, including:

lower sound levels

elimination of potentially startling special effects and lighting

house lights on at about 50%

PLUS, at this performance we have:

relaxed house rules -- you are free to get up, move around, and leave whenever you need to

allowed use of iPads and other electronics for therapeutic uses

volunteers scattered throughout the theater to assist and direct audience members as needed

quiet areas and activity areas in the lobby for taking a break

fidget objects and earplugs available

certified staff, ushers, and volunteers from a wide variety of autism service agencies, schools, and organizations
