Sensory-Friendly Performance | A Year With Frog and Toad
Orlando REP is pleased to announce its Sensory-Friendly performance of A Year With Frog and Toad, specially designed for children with autism or other sensory processing disorders and special needs. Following the success of previous Sensory-Friendly productions, Orlando REP presents this performance on September 16 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 A Year With Frog and Toad 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: Celebrating the values of enduring friendship, this Tony Award-nominated musical follows Frog and Toad through four fun-filled seasons. Along with their forest friends, the pals learn life lessons through planting gardens, swimming, raking leaves, and sledding. Based on the beloved books by Arnold Lobel, this jubilant musical celebrates kindness, imagination, differences, and the power of friendship. With catchy songs and vivid characters, this show is perfect for the whole family!
