Talking candlesticks, an enchanted rose, and dancing tableware?!
It’s a race against the clock: the petals of the enchanted rose are falling, and an angry mob is storming the castle door… will the curse be broken before the last petal falls and the Beast and his household are doomed for all eternity? This classic tale of spiritual awakening and personal metamorphosis challenges Belle and the Beast – and all of us – to re-think our definitions of love, beauty and inclusion.

Book by Linda Woolverton, Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Howard Ashman & Tim Rice
Beauty and the Beast will be Directed by Devon Turchan

A Sensory Performance is a show geared towards those on the Autism Spectrum. Sensory Performances are performed in a friendly, supportive environment for an audience of people on the spectrum as well as their families and friends, people with other sensitivity issues, or other disabilities.
There are a number of guidelines that go along with hosting a Sensory Production. Some of these guidelines include:
-Keeping the house lights on but dimmed
-Altering the sound and making sure the audience is prepared before any loud or sudden banging noise
-No fog or haze that will enter the audience
-Preparing the audience if there are any lights that shine into the house
-Keeping the house doors open
-Providing a designated quiet space set up in the lobby for people who need to step away from the production
-Providing fidgets and noise cancelling devices for those who need it

This performance is for people on the Autism Spectrum as well as others with sensitivity issues, their friends, and families. While the show will be the same performance that any typical audience will see the audience itself, on the Dec. 7 performance, will not be typical. Because of this, tickets for this performance can only be purchased over the phone.
Only registered users may comment.
