CHARLOTTE’S WEB – Sensory-Friendly Performance

Charlotte’s Web is based on E.B. White’s loving story of the friendship between a pig named Wilbur and a little gray spider named Charlotte. Wilbur has a problem: how to avoid winding up as pork chops! Charlotte, a fine writer and true friend, hits on a plan to fool Farmer Zuckerman. She will create a “miracle.” Spinning the words “Some Pig” in her web, Charlotte weaves a solution which not only makes Wilbur a prize pig but also ensures his place on the farm forever.

This treasured tale, featuring mad-cap and endearing farm animals, explores bravery, selfless love and the true meaning of friendship.

This 60-minute Sensory-Friendly performance is for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders or any sensory or social cognitive disorders. Seating will be limited.

Adjustments to the production include:
• consistent sound volume,

• house lights dimmed (but not off),
• no strobes or flashing lights,
• explanation of what will be seen and heard,
• quiet areas in the venue,
• fidgets welcome,
• audience encouraged to talk and react,
• ability to leave your seats.
