Sensory Friendly Performances


New this season, Cardinal Stage is introducing Sensory Friendly programming into its Cardinal for Kids Series! Cardinal for Kids Sensory-friendly performances are designed to create a theater experience that is welcoming to all families with children with autism or other sensory sensitivities.

Accommodations for these performances include: 

  • Lower sound level, especially for startling or loud sounds
  • Lights remain on at a low level in the theater during the performance
  • Elimination of any strobe or flashing light sequences
  • Patrons are free to talk and leave their seats during the performance
  • More space in theater seating area for standing and movement
  • Fidgets and noise cancelling headphones welcome
  • Resource materials available online and at performances, so families know what to expect at the theater and during the show


Sunday, November 3 at 4:00 PM
