Access and Inclusion | Sensory-Friendly Performances

Children's Theatre of Charlotte offers a sensory-friendly performance for each of our Mainstage productions, adjusted for families and friends with children or adults on the autism spectrum or with other sensory sensitivities. At the performance, theatre lighting and sound will be softened and the house lights will dim but stay on. Guests will also have extra room in the house to move around as needed during the performance. Quiet spaces, fidgets and headphones will also be available.

Children's Theatre of Charlotte trains all staff to meet the needs of those attending. Before attending the performances, families can walk through virtual tours online and get to know ImaginOn’s public space including the interior of the McColl Family Theatre and the Wells Fargo Playhouse. Parents can download a variety of resources to help them prepare their family for the show.
