Sensory Friendly/Relaxed Performances

ZACH Theatre has always made being inclusive a mainstay of our productions.

To continue this tradition, we have created a sensory-friendly/relaxed performance. A sensory-friendly/relaxed performance is specifically geared toward people or groups who would benefit from some of the adjustments listed below. The term “sensory friendly” is a common term for events and experiences at theaters and museums.

For ZACH’s performance:

  • Adjustments to lighting and sound elements that may be sudden or intense.
  • Detailed information prior to your visit outlining what to expect when you arrive.
  • A more relaxed theatre environment that allows patrons to move around, respond or take a break as needed.
  • Spaced out seating throughout the theatre to allow each individual/group the space they need to relax and enjoy the performance.
  • A quiet space set up in our lobby for those who might want to take a break during the performance.
  • Individuals should feel free to bring any personal communication devices or sensory supports they
    might need.
