OCP, in partnership with Autism Action Partnership, will host a sensory-friendly performance of A Christmas Carol on Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2019 at 7 p.m.
This special performance is designed to create an experience that is welcoming to those with autism spectrum disorders, sensory sensitivities and other special needs. Accommodations for this performance will include the following:
- House lights will remain on at a low level in the theatre throughout the performance.
- Off-stage volunteers will raise glow sticks one minute prior to potentially triggering events in the production such as loud noises, bright lighting, strobe lighting, etc.
- Sensory kits will be available for those attending.
- Designated quiet zones will be available in the lobby areas outside of the theatre throughout the performance.
The Omaha Community Playhouse strives to create performing arts experiences that are enjoyable for all members of our community. For more information on the sensory-friendly performance, please contact the OCP Box Office at (402) 553-0800.
