Time: 2:00PM to 3:30PM

Location: Nashville Children's Theatre 25 Middleton St, Nashville, TN 37210


Sensory Friendly Performance of The Hundred Dresses

NCT welcomes all kids and families to our performances, but we know that some families hesitate to bring their children to live theatre without knowing how they might react. Sensory Friendly Performances are designed to be a safe and accepting environment where children with disabilities and their typically developing peers are free to speak and move in reaction to the story being told onstage.

Modifications

  • Sound levels will be lowered slightly
  • Usher-Guide will light a glow light before something startling is about to happen onstage
  • Relaxed house rules that invite audience members to vocalize and move in reaction to the story onstage.

Resources

  • Pre-Visit Story
  • A Parent Tip Sheet for each show, available one week prior to the Sensory Friendly Performance found here
  • .
  • A Comfort Room in the rear of the auditorium, where light and sound levels can be adjusted (available for all public performances). Noise reducing headphones can be checked out from our box office (available for all public performances).
  • A quiet room for families who need to take a break during the show

Description of The Hundred Dresses

By William Kent Williams, Adapted from the book by Eleanor Estes.

Wanda Petronski, the new girl in Room 13, speaks with an accent, has a funny last name, lives in the wrong part of town, and wears the same faded blue dress to school every day. Who would believe she has a hundred bright, shiny new ones at home? As Wanda's story unfolds, audiences of all ages are taken on a heartwarming journey about finding the courage to stand up for others, even if you are standing alone.
