Sensory Inclusive

What does sensory-inclusive mean?

Sensory-inclusive (SI) performances are modified to create a welcoming and supportive environment for children and adults on the autism spectrum as well as individuals with other sensitivity issues or developmental disabilities. These programs were formerly called our sensory-friendly performances.

What makes these performances sensory-inclusive?
Performers modify shows to ensure there are no startling noises or visually over-stimulating components. Our team keeps sound levels lower than normal and keeps the lights in the audience higher than normal, ensuring audience members can see each other. Audience members are free to come and go if need be (there is always a “quiet room” available) and are asked to wave hands rather than clapping.

Cost: Adults and Children: Tickets start at $7
