The EQT Children’s Theater Festival staff is committed to providing an environment that is inclusive and welcoming to all patrons.
Designated sensory-friendly performances have either been adapted or created to serve the needs of individuals on the Autism spectrum and with sensory sensitivities and their loved ones and caregivers.
Trained ushers and expert volunteers will be available on site in the theater to assist you. Productions have been modified or created to be mindful about sensory sensitivities. There are no loud noises, bright lights, or abrupt surprises; house rules will also be relaxed. If your child is ever feeling over-stimulated, a comfort zone and fidgets are available at all times in each of the venues where a sensory-friendly performance is held during the sensory-friendly performance.
