Sensory-Friendly Performances

Intended for individuals on the autism spectrum and their families

​The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati is proud to present TCT’s first ever Sensory-Friendly performances, intended for individuals on the autism spectrum, as well as people with other developmental or cognitive disabilities who may benefit and their families.

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 downstairs 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 theatre and the production, designed to personalize the experience for individuals wishing to prepare for the show.  Additional resources for this performance, such as a Character Guide, and a Guide to Attending the Show is also available here on our website approximately one week before each show.
