This pre-visit guide, or “Social Narrative”, was created by the theater to help our sensory sensitive guests become familiar with the layout of the theater before their visits and to highlight any areas that may be noisy, bright or otherwise overwhelming.
The theater’s Quiet Zone provides overwhelmed or over-stimulated audience members with a quiet area to calm, re-gather, and decompress. Sensory tools, like fidget spinners, touch boards, squeeze stars and more will are available — in addition to a streaming, low volume TV to ensure that, even if overwhelmed in the theater, audience members can still enjoy the show in an area that they may feel is more relaxed and is helpful in understanding the new experiences surrounding them.
The Accessibility Map was created by the theater to familiarize guests with areas that may be noisy or bright, or areas with ramp or elevator access, to help them better navigate the facility while here.
Centre Theater is proud to begin its transformation into a more inclusive facility. The theater’s upcoming Sensory-Friendly Performances and will debut the theater’s new accessibility resources for sensory-sensitive guests, including playbills noting potential stressors within the performances.
