What makes it "sensory-friendly"?


A friendly, supportive environment for families with a loved one with special needs. Adaptations to the performance are slight, including:

  • lower sound levels

  • elimination of potentially startling special effects and lighting

  • house lights on at about 20%

  • you are free to get up, move around, and leave whenever you need to

  • a reduced length of performance

  • allowed use of iPads and other electronics for therapeutic uses

  • volunteers scattered throughout the theater to assist and direct audience members as needed

  • quiet areas for taking a break

  • fidget objects and earplugs available

  • Story boards, visits before or after public hours, meet-a-seat program are available upon request. 

Please call or email us ahead of time to schedule these options. 


If a show is canceled due to inclement weather a credit will be given to future shows.

"Studies have shown that theatre experiences increase social skills for students with autism. Our sensory-friendly performance allows everyone

to experience ballet in a comfortable, nurturing, and accepting environment!"
