Sensory Friendly Performances at Phantom Project’s La Habra Depot Theatre

LA HABRA, CA  Phantom Projects will present Sensory Friendly performances of Charlotte’s Web, on Sunday, Feb. 13 at 12:00 PM; Mariachi Girl on  Sunday, Apr. 3 at 12:00 PM; and You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown on Sunday, May 15 at 12:00 PM, at The Phantom Projects Theatre at La Habra Depot.

A Sensory Friendly performance is a live-theatre production that welcomes individuals with sensory needs, including people on the autism spectrum, as well as first-time theatregoers and young children. Performances are at reduced capacity to allow for patron movement; staff and actors are trained to accommodate patron needs, and all patrons are welcome to experience theater in a safe, non-judgmental environment.

In addition, there are environmental adjustments to create a friendly, supportive environment, as well as alterations to the performance:

  • The house lights will remain dimmed during the performance, rather than completely off
  • The intensity of lighting and sound effects will be reduced
  • A staffed quiet area will available in the lobby for children who need to take a break from the show
  • There will be a relaxed and inclusive atmosphere where patrons can feel comfortable during the performance and enter or exit the theater during the performance, with the assistance of ushers
  • Tablets and smartphones will be permitted to help non-verbal audience members communicate
