Relaxed Performances 

October 28, 2018–May 5, 2019

This season, we’re pleased to offer a series of relaxed performances adapted for neurodiverse audiences, including children with autism or other disabilities. At these performances, there are no restrictions around noise or movement, audience members are welcome to leave and re-enter the theater, and adjustments are made to these productions to reduce sensory stimuli. Ages listed are age ranges recommended by our programming experts. Parents are welcome to use their discretion in determining which shows are best for their children.
