New York City Children’s Theater’s Sensory-Friendly Performance

New York City Children’s Theater is excited to offer a sensory-friendly performance of each of our mainstage productions! Sensory Friendly performances are designed to create a welcoming environment for all families with children on the autism spectrum and related conditions.

To provide a welcoming environment, the following adjustments will be made to the performance:

  • House lights will remain at a low level during the performance
  • Reduction of loud sounds
  • Reduction of flashing or jarring lights
  • Sensory support (fidgets, earplugs, noise-canceling headphones) are available to audience members upon request
  • A quiet area is designated in the lobby. Audience members may exit and re-enter as needed
  • A relaxed atmosphere: audience members can vocalize and talk throughout the performance
  • Autism specialists are on site and available to provide support
