PRIME STAGE SENSORY INCLUSIVE PERFORMANCE

Our Sensory Inclusive Performance is a family experience fostering attendance and meaningful experiences at Prime Stage Theatre. A sensory inclusive performance may involve adapting the house rules for a particular performance, adapting the audience environment, creating alternative ticketing and seating arrangements, as well as pre-theater preparatory activities for the person with a sensory, social, or learning disability so the person begins to understand and anticipate what might happen at a performing arts experience.
