Each production within our Lerner Family Theatre Season features a Sensory-Friendly performance designed to be more accessible for those individuals on the autism spectrum and their families. Our Sensory-Friendly performances aim to provide a safe and welcoming environment where families can simply relax and be who they are. Tickets to Sensory-Friendly Performances are $12-$25 and 100% refundable up until the show begins.
ADAPTATIONS FOR A SENSORY-FRIENDLY PERFORMANCE
- A pre-visit social story, video, and other preparatory materials for parents and children explaining what to expect
- Glow sticks raised when a surprise will happen on stage
- Reduction of the sound level and bright stage lighting
- Low lighting in the theatre so patrons can easily move around or exit the theatre
- Limited crowds and “seating holes” to allow space between families
- Designated spaces for those who need a quieter area to take a break
- Allowance for the use of tablets and smartphones for communication
