The Wizard of Oz Sensory-Friendly Screening
We have partnered with our friends at Hope Springs Florida to present a sensory-friendly screening of the classic family film The Wizard Of Oz.
About Sensory Friendly Performances:
Sensory-friendly performances are designed to create a performing arts experience in a comfortable, relaxed, judgment-free zone that is welcoming to all families with children who have developmental disabilities that create sensory sensitivities. These performances are especially recommended for individuals with autism or other developmental disabilities, their families, teachers, advocates, caregivers and those who are familiar with and accepting of behaviors they (and others) may exhibit.
Slight adjustments are made to the production including • Reduced noise levels during the performance • Consistent sound levels and lower volume • No flashing lights or sudden lighting changes.
Slight adjustments are also made inside the theatre including • House lights are dimmed but do not go out completely • Families can bring their own snacks, drinks, behavior reinforcements, etc. • Children are free to leave their seat under parental supervision • Quiet areas and activity spaces are made available to those who need to leave.
There will be a designated room at the Theatre for children who need a break from the movie, and this room will have sensory friendly toys and furnishings to help the child until they are ready to return to the movie.
This event is open to the public.
