Sensory-Friendly Performances

Intended for individuals on the autism spectrum and their families

​The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati is proud to present two Sensory-Friendly performances during the 18-19 season intended for individuals on the autism spectrum who may benefit and their families.

These performances will take the place of our daytime weekday Sensory-Friendly performances.

  • Santa Claus: The Musical on Saturday, December 8 at 5 PM
  • Disney’s The Jungle Book KIDS on Saturday, February 16 at 5 PM

Limited tickets for these shows will be sold separately.  

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 children and their families can take a break from the performance. 

A downloadable Social Narrative (in Word format) with pictures of the theatre and the production will be available on our website, 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 will also be available.
