According to Hugh Hallinan, Downtown Cabaret Theatre Executive Producer "Our performance onSensory Sensitive Sunday will introduce the world of live theatre to special needs children on the autism spectrum and will allow families to experience theatre together in a supportive ambiance with no judgments. We want each member of the audience to enjoy the theatrical experience of Freckleface Strawberry - The Musical and to be assured that everyone involved with the production...the cast, production crew and theatre staff-is doing all they can to make the show a stress-free and unforgettable."
Sensory Sensitive performances can be a godsend for families usually excluded from stage performances. Live theater with its intense environment and expensive ticket prices is prohibitive for most families who have children who may not be able to stay for the entire performance because they get scared, agitated, or simply express their enjoyment in ways that are not accepted by the majority of the other theater-going public. However, these performances can be magical for individuals with autism who often become totally involved in the entertainment.
