Mid-Columbia Ballet presents a sensory friendly performance of The Nutcracker

This is a production of the Nutcracker ballet that is modified for individuals with sensory needs to attend as audience members. A regular performance may be too loud, too bright, or too busy for people with autism spectrum disorders, sensory processing disorders, anxiety or other cognitive or physical disabilities. A “sensory-friendly” performance is adapted by keeping the house lights up, the sound levels lowered, and allowing a more relaxed atmosphere, giving choices to the families attending. The staff and performers are specially trained to accommodate the needs of this population, and the shush-free zone creates an inclusive and stressless environment for the attendees.
