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.

Broward and Miami-Dade Superintendents Meet with U.S. Secretary of Education During Visit to Cypress Bay High School

On Monday, April 4, 2022, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona and U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz met with Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) Superintendent Dr. Vickie L. Cartwright, Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) Superintendent Dr. Jose L. Dotres and School Board members from both districts during a visit to Cypress Bay High School in Weston. The visit focused on advancing the goal of reimagining traditional educational pathways and improving equitable opportunities for all students.

The group discussed critical issues facing school districts, including recovery efforts related to the pandemic and its impact on student achievement, as well as federal stimulus funding. They also discussed the importance of providing career pathways for students and visited Cypress Bay High’s unique FBI Cyber/STEM program, which exposes students to a wide spectrum of cyber security and STEM-related disciplines to prepare them for real-world careers in those fields.

“This was a wonderful opportunity for Superintendent Jose Dotres and me to talk directly with U.S. Secretary of Education Cardona and Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz about the issues facing our schools and students,” said BCPS Superintendent Cartwright. “We appreciate their support and leadership and for allowing us the opportunity to showcase Cypress Bay High School and its outstanding FBI Cyber/STEM program. We look forward to continuing our partnership to ensure that we have the necessary resources to educate today’s students to succeed in tomorrow’s world.”

“This visit with Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona, and Superintendent Vickie Cartwright marked a very important occasion for Miami-Dade and Broward school districts to discuss many of the shared opportunities and challenges facing public education in South Florida,” said M-DCPS Superintendent Dotres. “Together, we will continue to advocate for resources and flexibility necessary to address the needs of our students including additional mental health support and unfinished learning, which remain among our highest priorities.”
