SENSORY SENSITIVE PERFORMANCE of Freckleface Strawberry ? The Musical - Downtown Cabaret Theatre
Add to Calendar 03-03-2013 03-03-2013 15 SENSORY SENSITIVE PERFORMANCE of Freckleface Strawberry ? The Musical Based on the book by celebrated and award-winning actress Julianne Moore, Freckleface, nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award for outstanding new Off-Broadway musical, steps inside the book's pages with Freckleface and her friends as they confront bullying and learn to love the skin they're in. This performance welcomes all families with children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or other sensitivity issues. It is a special pilot project designed to not only create a positive live theater experience for those in attendance, but also to determine how best to offer additional sensory sensitive performances of upcoming productions. To make the occasion more accessible to children and adults on the autism spectrum, theater lights will remain on at a low level, sound amplification will be lowered and remain constant without abrupt jarring sounds. Children will be free to talk and leave their seats under parental supervision and there will be a reduction of strobe lighting that might be focused on the audience. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=128894 Downtown Cabaret Theatre true DD/MM/YYYY
