STC is excited to offer a sensory-friendly performance of Peter Pan and Wendy. This event is a safe space for individuals and families to enjoy a performance and be themselves.
What is a sensory-friendly performance? It’s just that—patrons are able to react however they wish to the show or to the environment, and enjoy a completely judgement-free zone. This will be a full performance of Peter Pan and Wendy, with elements such as lighting and sound adjusted slightly to lighten the sensory experience of the show. The house lights will not go completely out at any point. Sound cues will not be as loud. The joy of the theatre will still be present and Tinkerbell’s sparkle will still be magical—she may just be a little less overwhelming for some.
At this performance, patrons are welcome to come and go in the house as they please. Seating will be general admission to allow plenty of space to spread out and be comfortable. If you or your companion needs a break, the lobby will be open with a live feed of the show. Food, toys, fidgets or self-soothing aids are welcome into the theatre with patrons. Talking will be allowed and no one will be asked to keep it down. Tablets or other technology needed for communication are also welcome. There will be staff on hand to help guide patrons to accessible bathrooms, as well as point out quiet areas for those who may need to take a break.
We hope this provides an opportunity for patrons of any age to come as they are and enjoy Peter Pan and Wendy!
