At The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati, we believe theatre is for everyone.  That’s why we are so excited to present the third season of MainStage Sensory-Friendly performances at the Taft Theatre.  

These are special performances intended for individuals on the autism spectrum who may benefit and their families, not for the general public.  Only a limited number of tickets will be sold.

SENSORY-FRIENDLY PERFORMANCE:
Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical

When:  April 29, 2020 at 12:15 PM

Tickets $8

TO CREATE A SENSORY-FRIENDLY PERFORMANCE:
  • The show is being performed in a welcoming, supportive environment for those with sensory challenges. 
  • Slight adjustments to lighting and sound will be made for the performance. Effects such as fog, strobes and lights that extend into the audience will be minimalized. 
  • In the theater lobby, there will be an area staffed by specialists in the field where you and your child can take a break from the performance.
  • A downloadable Social Narrative (in Word format) with pictures of the theater and the production will be available on our website, designed to personalize the experience for individuals wishing to prepare for the show. These will be posted one week prior to each production.
  • Additional resources for this performance, such as a Character Guide, and a Guide to Attending the Show will also be available one week prior to each production.
  • A committee of experts in the field was created to aid TCT with these performances, including staff members from Theatre Development Fund’s Autism Theatre Initiative -- the organization that implements sensory-friendly performances on Broadway, along with members from Children's Hospital Medical Center/The University of Cincinnati University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, Autism Society of Greater Cincinnati, Cincinnati Occupational Therapy Institute, Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati, The Point/Arc of Northern Kentucky, The Children’s Home of Cincinnati and Q102.
