McCain Auditorium - Kansas State


McCain Auditorium is hosting a FREE “Autism-Friendly Performance,” or “Relaxed Performance” for special needs kids and adults with the Parsons Dance Company September 14, 11:30-12:30 at McCain Auditorium. Open to all kids and adults with special needs, their caregivers and siblings! This “Autism-Friendly Performance, or ‘Relaxed Performance’ allows audiences to have the freedom to express themselves and react openly while watching the dancers and hearing the music. For this performance, sensory stimuli such as lights and sound are modified and the theater designates quiet spaces to take a break from the show. There is also a talk-back element to the show. A Parsons representative will navigate the audience through the show, pausing between each piece to tell people what to look for and answer questions. This ensures that the show moves at an accessible pace and makes the performance interactive, engaging, and comfortable for all audiences.”
Reservations are FREE but you must email Terri Lee at McCain Auditorium,
