Sensory Friendly Performance of ‘Seussical’ at Matthews Playhouse


Sensory Friendly Performance of ‘Seussical’ at Matthews Playhouse

As part of its mission to make the arts more accessible to all, Matthews Playhouse has added a special performance of Seussical that has been modified for children with sensory sensitivities and their families on Saturday, March 4, 2023 at 11 a.m.
This show will be modified to have lower sound and light levels and eliminate startling or loud sounds. The theatre will remain dimly lit during the performance, and audience members will be allowed to stand, roam around, and come and go as needed. Parents are also welcome to bring certain items that provide their children comfort, cushions, headphones, electronics, snacks, and other support items. Designated quiet and calm spaces will be available to children as needed.
