Sensory Friendly Sleeping Beauty

ASERT recently had the pleasure of attending a sensory friendly show in Malvern (Chester County) by People’s Light: Sleeping Beauty, A Musical Panto. Below is a list of all the things we learned while attending.

1. Be prepared to be excited. The audience’s excitement before the show could be felt throughout the theatre. It is contagious!

2. Inclusivity! The audience was very diverse and everyone seemed to be at ease and the environment felt very welcoming.
3. Watching the children enjoy the show is just as entertaining as the play itself. At times, it was as if we were all a part of the play.

4. If you need help just ask! The staff at the theatre were at the ready to answer any questions or provide accommodations.

5. Take advantage of the quiet zone they have set up if needed!

6. Make sure you pay attention for which shows are coming up on their schedule!
