Sensory Friendly Performances

We are excited to share this special performance series specially modified for children and families with sensory needs. A very important part of our mission at SCT is to provide children of all ages access to world-class, professional theatre.


What is a Sensory-Friendly Performance?

Each Relaxed or Sensory-Friendly Performance incorporates special modifications to accommodate audiences with sensory needs, including:

  • Changes to the performance:
    • Increased lighting in the seating area and house throughout the performance.
    • Lower sound levels.
    • Lowered seating capacities to allow for more space and movement between patrons.
  • Relaxed theatre rules:
    • Use of tablets, smart phones, and other electronic devices can be used with headphones during the performance.
    • Options to bring in and use special seating devices as needed.
    • Fidget toys welcome.
    • Food and drink are welcome
  • Support for families:
    • Additional trained staff on hand to provide patrons with assistance when needed.
    • Refunds for tickets and cancellations made the day of show are options if necessary.
    • Prompt sheets for family members to prepare before their show.
    • Opportunities to visit the theatre prior to the show. Tours can be scheduled with Stephanie Couturier at
