Broward Center For The Performing Arts Announces New Sensory-Inclusive Performances

FORT LAUDERDALE – With audiences returning to the theater, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts is thrilled to announce three upcoming live and in-person sensory-inclusive performances for the whole family to enjoy. Tickets are affordably priced at $10 each for these performances.

Sensory-inclusive performances create a welcoming and supportive environment for children and adults on the autism spectrum as well as for individuals with other sensitivity issues or developmental disabilities. Slight adjustments are made to the productions including reduced sound levels, no flashing or strobe lights and minimal special effects. As a plus, a pre-show arts and crafts activity with Young At Art Museum will take place before performances in the Amaturo Theater, plus a post-show meet and greet with the casts of the shows.

To provide additional comfort for attendees and their families, an area adjacent to the theater is designated as a quiet room with specially trained volunteers to provide audience support. Patrons may bring their own headphones, fidgets and other calming items into the theater or borrow these items at the theater. Ticket buyers will receive an email prior to the performance with a link to a character guide and short video about attending the theater.
