Sensory-friendly performances are designed to create a welcoming environment for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and other individuals with sensory sensitivities.
Accommodations during these performances include keeping the theatre lights dimmed, providing extra space between patrons, freedom to vocalize and move/switch seats, and allowing patrons to exit and enter during the performance.
While Sensory-friendly performances have a fluid atmosphere, they are open to the general public and can be a learning opportunity regarding the typical theatre experience.
Complete List of Accommodations for Sensory Friendly Performance
- Theater will not be filled to capacity, therefore audience members can select their own seats
- Patrons will be allowed to move freely through the aisles
- Individuals are free to vocalize during the performance
- House Lights will remain on at low level during performance
- To give warning to the audience, sudden loud sounds or startling moments will be signaled in advance
- Entering and exiting the theatre will be allowed throughout the performance
- A “quiet room” outside of the theater to allow patrons to regain composure and return to the performance
- Trained Kentucky Center volunteers on hand to assist with patron needs and requests
