Judy Moody & Stink | Sensory-Friendly Performance
Orlando REP is pleased to announce its Sensory-Friendly performance of Judy Moody & Stink: The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Treasure Hunt, specially designed for children with autism, Asperger’s, or other sensory processing disorders and special needs. Following the success of previous Sensory-Friendly productions, Orlando REP presents this performance on April 22 at 5:30pm for that audience.
The flashing lights and loud noises that may occur onstage can be unbearable for children with these types of sensitivities. And for many, the requirements to remain seated quietly for an extended period of time is a nearly impossible task. Often, because of these challenges, families that include a child with special needs do not feel that the world of theatre is accessible to them.
Special modifications have been made to Orlando REP’s production of Judy Moody & Stink: The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Treasure Hunt for this Sensory-Friendly performance. Volunteer helpers are stationed in the lobby and throughout the theatre to assist patrons as they are seated. Adjustments have been made to the show’s lighting and sound effects. A quiet room is available, should patrons need to leave the theatre at any time. A Social Story, a resource guide for parents and children, is also available for download, so patrons can get a feel for the theatre experience before the day of the show.
SYNOPSIS: Avast, ye scum buckets and scallywags! Judy Moody often has flights of fancy, but a real-life adventure on a treasure island just might top them all! As soon as the Moody family drops anchor on “Artichoke” Island, they are greeted by Scurvy Sam, a pirate who sends Judy Moody and Stink on a swashbuckling adventure, involving cryptic clues, secret codes, and tricky puzzles. The siblings team up to race against the clock and other treasure-hunters. Will this adventure help Judy Moody complete her Me Collage? Aaarrr!
