This Sensory-Inclusive Performance is intended to create a welcoming and supportive environment for children and adults on the autism spectrum as well as individuals with other sensitivity issues or developmental disabilities. Slight adjustments have been made to the production including reduced sound levels, no flashing or strobe lights and minimal special effects. An area adjacent to the theater has been designated as the ABA Centers of Florida Quiet Room with a specially trained therapist to provide audience support.

Created by the world-famous composer Tchaikovsky nearly 200 years ago, The Nutcracker tells the story of a spectacular Christmas Eve party and the magical events that take place late that night. With dancers of all ages, colorful costumes and breathtaking music, this abridged (60-minute), sensory-friendly performance of the timeless classic celebrates the magic of the season and serves as wonderful introduction to the ballet.

This performance will benefit SOVENIA USA.
