Who can attend?
Although these performances are open to all patrons, they are intentionally modified to accommodate patrons with sensory and vestibular sensitivities, anxiety, dementia, autism spectrum disorders, learning differences or challenges attending the theater.
What should I expect?
Small modifications will be made to the performance, which may include reducing the volume of loud noises and effects, eliminating strobe lights, keeping the house lights on and having a relaxed attitude toward sound and movement in the audience. In addition to making adjustments onstage and in the theater, our lobbies and public spaces will include quiet areas, sensory-friendly activities and increased staff to create a safe, welcoming environment.
Before you arrive
We will offer a variety of support materials to ensure you have a positive experience, including a detailed narrative about what it's like to visit the Guthrie, an overview of the scenes and characters from the production and maps to help you choose the best routes and spaces during your visit.
