Sensory-Friendly Sundays

2021-2022

Sensory-Friendly Sundays

Guests with sensory sensitivities (such as Autism Spectrum Disorder) and other developmental differences are invited to enjoy the Center for Puppetry Arts in a fun, comfortable and welcoming environment!

What You Can Expect

On Sensory-Friendly Days, guests will be welcomed by excited and supportive staff members. Fidget toys, social stories, sound-reducing headphones and light-reducing sunglasses are available upon request.

Lighting is adjusted in the Museum, the theater and the Create-A-Puppet Workshop™ sensory-friendly classroom. The Museum will integrate fun activities like touch tables and guided storytelling.

During shows, sounds are low and consistent. Guests can respond and leave their seats and enjoy their quiet, contained beverage and snacks (peanut-free if possible, please).

 The sensory-friendly Create-A-Puppet Workshop™ classroom will be quieter, feature more table space to create and decorate, and have fidget toys and gloves for those who may have touch needs or sensitivities.

 There is a quiet area located by the theater and Museum with books, fidget toys, coloring books and puppets for any guests who need to step away from the show, workshop or Museum.

 We are committed to providing a safe, open and enjoyable experience for all guests. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
