Attention: Autism Society SE WI Members:

Come home for the holidays with First Stage and this beloved TV classic, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. From fleeing the Abominable Snow Monster to saving Christmas, join Rudolph and his friends, Hermey the Elf and Yukon Cornelius, as their adventures teach us that what makes you different can be what makes you special.

This is one holiday gift the entire family will treasure.

RUNTIME - Approx. 60 minutes, no intermission.

AGE RECOMMENDATION - Great for the whole family!

Enjoy a performance where families with children who need sensory accommodations can share the experience of seeing family-friendly theater. This free special event is offered to Autism Society SE WI members only. Limited seating for 100 available. Please only reserve tickets if you are sure you can attend.

These performances feature a welcoming environment including lower sound, lights up, and available quiet areas staffed by educators experienced with the care of students with autism and other developmental differences.

Sensory Friendly performance accommodations include:

  • Smaller audience size
  • 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.
  • An opportunity to see the actors in costume prior to the performance.
  • Quiet areas available, staffed by educators experienced with the care of students on the autism spectrum or with other developmental disabilities.
  • Patrons are welcome to use sensory items such as noise-cancelling headphones or fidgets in the theater during the performance.
  • Social stories that outline the experience at the theater available; show-specific social stories created closer to the performance date.
  • TV monitors available in the Todd Wehr Theater lobby from which to view the performance, should an audience member need to leave the theater during the performance.
  • No Sensory Friendly Kits available for this performance so please brings your headphones from home if you need them!

Ticket Exchange: If you realize before the performance that a trip to the theater will not be ideal for your family on that day, First Stage will offer a ticket exchange to another performance of your choice.

Please review our COVID-19 Safety Protocols as you plan your return to live theater performances.
