Center for Puppetry Arts says
In this fun and funky adaptation of the classic tale, trash is turned into treasure and true love prevails in a modern day city complete with alley cats, beauty shops, and exercise videos!

This special afternoon will allow guests with autism spectrum disorder to experience a sensory-friendly performance of Beauty & the Beast, as well as a sensory-friendly Create-A-Puppet workshop.

Sensory-friendly programming between 12pm-2:30pm
12pm-1pm: sensory-adjusted Museum exhibits
1pm: sensory-adjusted performance
1:45pm-2:30pm: sensory-adjusted Create-A-Puppet Workshops

Several alterations will be employed in the theater to create a comfortable setting for guests with ASD, such as a pre-show demo, lights on (but dimmed) inside the theater, consistent sound levels and lower volume of the show soundtrack, freedom for children to talk and to leave their seat if necessary, a quiet zone in the lobby, and permission for guests to bring quiet, contained snacks and beverages to enjoy during the performance.

In the Create-A-Puppet Workshop rooms, there will be less sensory stimulation, and the Teaching Artists present will have been trained on how to best interact with guests with ASD.

Tickets include the sensory-friendly Performance and the Create-A-Puppet Workshop where visitors can make their own friendly Alley Cat Hand Puppet to take home.
