Upcoming Event

We’d like to let you know about an upcoming opportunity for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders, and other sensitivity issues or special needs, to experience the world of ballet in a sensory-friendly environment.  At these performances there is a more casual approach to front of house etiquette and a more relaxed attitude to noise (voluntary and involuntary) in the auditorium. The aim is to minimize patrons’ anxiety and to ensure they have a safe and enjoyable theatre visit.

At the end of the performance there is an opportunity to talk to the dancers and see the costumes close up.

A social story will be prepared for each production, containing descriptions of what to expect at the performance. These social stories are a great way to ensure patrons get the maximum enjoyment from the experience.

*Wellington – Tuesday 16 April
Soundings Theatre – Te Papa, 2pm – 2.30pm
