Each production has one sensory-friendly performance. Sensory-friendly performances will have several notable changes to appeal to those individuals with sensory-processing needs including: minimizing any potentially startling sound and lighting effects, as well as providing a visual warning before they occur; keeping the house lights partially on during the performance instead of dimming them all the way; offering “buffer seats” between groups to ensure that children have enough personal space; providing a quiet “chill-out space” outside the auditorium for children who become overstimulated and need to take a break; offering families the opportunity to visit the theater beforehand to view their seats; and ensuring a judgment-free environment where guests can feel free to vocalize or move around the theater if they need to.

Sacred Heart School for the Arts is committed to creating a positive, creative environment that promotes a love of the arts to students of all abilities.
