Sensory-Friendly Performances

What makes these performances sensory-friendly? Our sensory-friendly performances feature a supportive, judgment-free environment with relaxed theater rules. Adaptations to our sensory-friendly performances include the following:

  • Dimmed house lights (30% brightness during the entire performance)
  • Lower sound levels
  • Elimination of startling special effects and lighting
  • Relaxed theater rules—freedom to get up, move around, and come and go as you desire
  • Designated quiet areas
  • Ushers available throughout the Schuster Center to assist patrons
  • Trained and informed dancers, staff, ushers, and other volunteers to ensure a memorable experience for you and your family
