Access & Inclusion | Sensory-Friendly Performances

Children's Theatre of Charlotte offers a sensory-friendly performance for each of our Mainstage productions, adjusted for families and friends with children or adults on the autism spectrum or with other sensory sensitivities.

  • Theatre lighting & sound softened
  • Dim house lights remain on
  • Extra room in the house to move around as needed
  • Quiet spaces and headphones available

Children's Theatre of Charlotte trains all staff to meet the needs of those attending. Before attending the performances, families can walk through virtual tours online and get to know ImaginOn’s public space including the interior of the McColl Family Theatre and the Wells Fargo Playhouse. Parents can download a variety of resources to help them prepare their family for the show.
