About the Program

This special presentation of The Nutcracker is great for all families, but especially for those with autism, sensory sensitivities, or other social, learning, or cognitive atypicality. Audience members are free to vocalize or move around the theatre in this spacious and casual environment. This performance features recorded music rather than a live orchestra, and loud sounds and jarring effects have been reduced or omitted.
