Project Lights Up!

These performances are designated exclusively for patrons on the autism spectrum or with other sensory sensitivities and their families, and are not open to the general public.

Sensory-friendly performances are designed for individuals living with autism and with other disabilities that might keep them from participating in a traditional theatre setting. This season we will be offering one sensory-friendly performances and one inclusive audience performances. The sensory-friendly performances have lower sound levels, lighting remains on at 30% in the theatre, and a there is a reduction of the use strobes and other dramatic lighting effects. The inclusive audience performances are exactly what patrons will see at our public performances and our In The Wings patrons are invited to attend these events alongside the Project Lights Up! patrons. For more specific information on both types of shows, please refer to our Sensory-Friendly Performance Guide.

Thanks to the generosity of the AWS Foundation and the Lincoln Financial Foundation, tickets to these performances are free to individuals with disabilities and their families.
