Sensory-Friendly: Snow White at the Vineyard
Saturday, April 27 at 11:00AM
Join us for a FREE sensory-friendly performance of Snow White, our Family Series ballet based on the beloved Grimm’s fairy tale, hosted on the outdoor stage. Follow the fairest of them all as she meets a forest full of friends, the Seven Dwarfs, and a dashing Prince. Experience the magic of love and friendship in an abridged version that’s designed for neurodiverse audiences.
This Outdoor Series performance venue removes sensory challenges (such as jarring sounds or lights in a theater) and families can come and go as needed during the one-hour performance. A quiet area will also be available during the show for any patron who needs to take a break.
