Sensory Friendly Performances

CTC understands that patrons with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Sensory Processing Disorder have unique and varying sensory needs and sensitivities, as may individuals with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety, and other sensory, social, and cognitive disabilities and mental illnesses. At our Sensory Friendly performances, sensory modifications are balanced with preserving the engaging theatre experience desired by all children and families. Sensory Friendly programming was developed in partnership with Fraser, ByPercent and the Autism Society of Minnesota.
