Sensory Friendly Performances
Storybook Musical Theatre is committed to providing an environment that is inclusive and welcoming to all patrons. For each show, Storybook will have sensory friendly performances that are customized especially for those with autism spectrum disorders or who have other disabilities that create sensory sensitivities.
Sensory friendly performances provide an opportunity for patrons of all ages to engage in and enjoy live musical theater together with family and friends in a relaxed, inclusive environment. Modifications typically available at sensory friendly performances include:
- Mitigation of sudden, loud sounds
- Low-level lighting throughout the performance
- Earplugs, and noise-cancelling headphones
- Patrons are welcome to leave and re-enter the theater throughout the performance
- Designated quiet area in theater lobby
- Patrons are welcome to talk, clap, sing, and move throughout the performance
- Storybook staff trained to be especially inclusive and accommodating to patron needs
- Materials to help families prepare for their Storybook Musical Theater experience
Sensory Friendly Performances of The Little Mermaid will be announced soon.
