We are an autism certified center and all staff and volunteers must complete annual training to maintain this qualification. Some of our programming is also sensory friendly. Lights are kept at a glow and music volumes adjusted along with run times to suit an audience who may not be able to handle a full performance but would still like to participate in the arts. We also offer performance education classes for children on the spectrum.
Additional Comments:

EMT and PD officers are on site for large performances should any medical assistance be required. We inclusively hire and as of such, three persons with physical or mental disabilities are in our front of house usher team and are thus able to pass along any tips and tricks to guests and let us in the admin team know of any difficulties they experience while traversing through the theater and lobby spaces.
