Mounds View Community Theater to present first sensory-friendly performance
Sparking imagination, creativity, inspiration – the joys of theater are endless. Although, for some families who have loved ones on the autism spectrum, attending this spectacle can seem to be out of reach. Performance spaces can be dark, quiet and an uncomfortable or challenging environment. This is the reason many theaters around the nation are beginning to host sensory-friendly performances, so everyone can enjoy the opportunity of seeing a live theater show in a welcoming and supportive environment.
For the first time, the Mounds View Community Theater, in partnership with the Ramsey County Library-Shoreview and the Autism Society of Minnesota, will be featuring a sensory-friendly performance of their summer production, H.M.S. Pinafore.
MVCT will offer special accommodations during a matinée performance to take place on Saturday, July 22, which will be suitable for those with memory loss, those on the autism spectrum, or other disabilities, and their families.
