Alice @ Wonderland Sensory-Friendly Performance

April 28, 2018

Cantey V. Sutton Theatre (General Admission)

We invite you to our first Sensory-Friendly Performance! Sensory-friendly performances are designed especially for individuals with autism spectrum disorders, sensory sensitivities, or other disabilities. Our goal is to create a welcoming, inclusive, and relaxed environment.

To provide a supportive and welcoming environment for children and families, sensory-friendly performances include:

  • Reduction of loud or jarring sounds
  • Reductions in flashing or strobe lights
  • Modification of the house lights during the performance
  • Accommodated house rules: audience members are free to talk or move during the show
  • Extra staff and volunteer support
  • Designated “Take a Break Space”

About The Show: The folly of the 21st century collides with the madness of Wonderland in this new adaptation that remains fairly faithful to Lewis Carroll’s original tale. Alice is a texting, tweeting, and googling girl of the modern digital era, but she finds herself in the Wonderland of old. For information about the show, click here visit the main show page.

Prepare for your visit!
