Event description

Description

Ignite Theatre Company is dedicated to making theatre accessible for all audience members and increasing inclusion for those on the autism spectrum and with other sensory, social, and cognitive disabilities.

What is a sensory friendly performance? An opportunity for families with children on the autism spectrum, or with sensory processing difficulties to attend a live theatre event in a judgement free environment. To provide a supportive and welcoming environment for children and families, dedicated 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 “Quiet Room” and “The Wiggle Section”
  • Guidance and sensory supports (fidgets, earplugs, noise cancelling ear-muffs) available in the lobby before the show

Audience members are welcome to bring their own manipulatives, seat cushions, comfort objects, and extra support items to the show. Families may select their own seats, but if special assistance or a buffer seat is needed, please let our staff know in advance.
