Sensory-friendly performances are designed to create a performing arts experience that is welcoming to all families with children with autism or with other disabilities that create sensory sensitivities.

Accommodations for these performances include:

  • Lower sound level, especially for startling or loud sounds;
  • Lights remain on at a low level in the theater during the performance;
  • A reduction of strobe lighting or lighting focused on the audience;
  • Patrons are free to talk and leave their seats during the performance;
  • Designated quiet areas within the theater;
  • Space throughout the theater for standing and movement;
  • Limited crowds and visitors at the theater during the day and timing of performance;
  • Staff trained to be inviting and accommodating to families’ needs

If you have additional questions regarding sensory-friendly programming, please email or call Engagement Manager, Brianna Funk at (623) 815-1791 X712
