It's a theater performance that welcomes individuals with sensory needs, including people on the autism spectrum, as well as first-time theater-goers and young children. The show is modified to provide a more calming environment, and all patrons are welcome to experience theater in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Some examples of steps we are currently taking to create such an environment include
lighting remains on at all times, and no complete black-outs
Sound effect volumes are lowered
Patrons may move around as needed
Comfort items are encouraged including things like headphones, fidgets, cushions, etc.
Extended time for intermission.
