Sensory-friendly performances will be identical to other performances of the run, but will feature a lantern placed discretely in the theater to let patrons know when a loud sound or intense lighting cue (such as strobe lights) is about to play, giving them the chance to close their eyes or block their ears.
What is special about these performances?
In addition to a warning lantern before intense sound and light effects, sensory-friendly performances will offer trained ushers in the audience to offer assistance, a social story and plot synopsis sent in advance, and a safe space in the lobby for patrons to return to if they need a break from the performance.
Patrons should note that Sensory-Friendly performances are still more appropriate for an audience of teenagers and adults. For family-friendly sensory-friendly performances, please see Trinity Rep's Sensory Friendly Plus! series.
