Charlottesville Ballet Presents "The Firebird" with the Autism Theatre Project
April 27, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Image by Keith Alan Sprouse[/caption] Charlottesville Ballet is partnering with the Autism Theatre Project to offer a free, sensory-friendly performance of The Firebird. Sensory-friendly performances aim to provide a positive theater experience for children with autism or other sensory-related disabilities and their families. Charlottesville Ballet will “preview” major theatrical effects for audience members before beginning the production, and special accommodations will account for potential sensory challenges such as jarring sounds or lights. A quiet area will also be available during the show for any patron who needs to take a break. Specially trained volunteers from the Autism Theatre Project will be present to support patrons and their families.
WHEN: Thursday, April 27 at 12:00pm
WHERE: PVCC’s V. Earl Dickinson Building (501 South College Drive | Charlottesville, VA 22901)
