Nashville Children's Theatre: The Snowy Day and Other Stories - Sensory Friendly Performance

Date: February 03, 2018

Time: 2:00PM to 3:30PM

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


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
