Trinity Rep offers at least one performance of every show to meet the needs of autistic patrons, audience members with PTSD, and/or guests with sensitivities to light and sound.
Sensory-friendly performances are identical to other performances of the run, but will feature a lantern placed discreetly 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. 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 more appropriate for an audience of teenagers and adults. For family-friendly sensory-friendly performances, please see Trinity Rep’s Sensory-Friendly Plus! series.
Sensory Friendly Guides are available at our Ticket Office or linked below.
Tickets to Trinity Rep’s sensory-friendly performances can be purchased as a subscription starting at $115 for all five plays or starting at $25 for a single ticket.
