Sensory Friendly: A Day With Disney

Saturday, November 11, 2023

-Please note: online ticket sales close approximately one hour before the performance. After that time, tickets may be purchased on a walkup basis at the onsite box office.-

A Day With Disney features music from popular Disney films including The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Star Wars, and more! Audience members are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite Disney characters too!

This event is designed especially for persons with sensory sensitivities and their families, and gives audience members the ability to fully experience orchestral music without any of the constraints of a standard performance.

During this 50 minute program, audience members are free to move about, dance, speak, sing, or vocalize. Sensory sensitive listeners and family members will delight in the discovery of an orchestral experience that invites and welcomes all to the world of classical music.

Up to 30min before or after each concert, experience a myriad of instruments first-hand in the lobby. Many instruments like small percussion are simple enough to tap or pick up & shake. More complex instruments will have attendants to help them to strum, pluck, or bow themselves. People of any age or ability are welcome. There is also a Quiet Room for those who need a break from the instrumental sounds!

Please note: For the safety of all guests, running and skipping are not allowed inside the auditorium.
