Sensory Friendly Performaces:
NCT welcomes all kids and families to our performances, but we know that some families hesitate to bring their children to live theatre without knowing how they might react. The access performances are designed to be a safe and accepting environment where children with disabilities and their typically developing peers are free to speak and move in reaction to the story being told onstage.
NCT provides a Comfort Room in the back of our theatre where audience members can always adjust both light and sound levels. This Comfort Room is available for any performance at NCT.
You can download a Social Story to help your child understand what to expect when you visit NCT and see a show.

|From parents who attended NCT's Sensory Friendly performances:
My daughter was recently diagnosed with autism and we have had a ton of trouble trying to find events and activities that she can go to with out her having a meltdown or getting super excited and then having to leave because she was to loud.
I was very impressed and very thankful that we were able to go to the sensory production of Go, Dog. Go! My daughter had a blast and got to cheer and dance in front of her seat and it was fine.... You guys are great and I know we will be back for more sensory productions."
|"My 3 year old has autism - mostly his speech/language and social skills. At Go, Dog. Go! he laughed and was very verbal. He would say the dogs' colors and ask me where they went and also tell me what they were doing. He especially loved the yellow dog. I started to cry when he just kept laughing and laughing. We even talked about it in the car - which is a big deal because I do most of the talking. This time he engaged in the discussion!!"
