About the Performance
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 area
- Trained and informed dancers, staff, ushers, and other volunteers to ensure a memorable experience for you and your family
We hope these pre-performance resources will help you and your family prepare for your performance.
