Pete the Cat
This new show is a groovy adventure of one cool, skateboarding, surfing, rocking blue cat and his fine friends. A new show based on the New York Times Best Seller series.
This special afternoon will allow guests with autism spectrum disorder to experience a sensory-friendly performance of Pete the Cat, as well as a sensory-friendly Create-A-Puppet workshop.
Sensory-friendly programming between 12pm-2:30pm:
- 12pm-1pm: sensory-adjusted Museum exhibits
- 1pm: sensory-adjusted performance
- 1:45pm-2:30pm: sensory-adjusted Create-A-Puppet Workshops
Several alterations will be employed in the theater to create a comfortable setting for guests with ASD, such as a pre-show demo, lights on (but dimmed) inside the theater, consistent sound levels and lower volume of the show soundtrack, freedom for children to talk and to leave their seat if necessary, a quiet zone in the lobby, and permission for guests to bring quiet, contained snacks and beverages to enjoy during the performance. In the Create-A-Puppet Workshop rooms, there will be less sensory stimulation, and the Teaching Artists present will have been trained on how to best interact with guests with ASD.
Tickets include the sensory-friendly Performance and the Create-A-Puppet Workshop where visitors can make their own puppet to take home.
