Sensory friendly plus family-friendly performances
Going into its sixth year, Trinity Rep continues the tradition of presenting a sensory-friendly performance of New England’s holiday favorite, A Christmas Carol. Now re-titled Sensory-Friendly Plus! to indicate the nature of sensory-friendly plus family-friendly performance, Trinity Rep will continue to offer a special performance of the holiday classic. This year, a Sensory-Friendly Plus! performance of the musical Little Shop of Horrors will also be available on Saturday, May 11 at 2:00 pm.
Designed to meet the needs of children and adults on the autism spectrum, and/or individuals with sensory processing disorders or other cognitive disabilities, this performance features modified sound, lighting and other adjustments. Patrons are invited to make sounds, enter and exit as needed during the performance and enjoy this holiday tradition with their family and community.
