A safe place for families to experience live theatre together. 

August 27, 2023 @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm

The Goodspeed 6 Main Street, East Haddam, CT 

Everyone should get the chance to enjoy live theatre. This summer, we will be offering a Sensory- Friendly Performance for Summer Stock. This family-friendly performance is designed and intended for those who are on the autism spectrum or who have other sensory issues. The theatre environment will be altered, providing a safe, friendly, comfortable and judgment-free zone that is welcoming for all. 

What is Summer Stock about

Forget your troubles-come on, get happy! The tradition of turning a barn into a theater finds fertile new ground in a joyous world premiere inspired by the classic Judy Garland-Gene Kelly movie. When theatrical Gloria invites fellow troupers to the family farm with the idea of putting on a show, her practical sister Jane is stubborn as a mule but relents because the farm needs work-and workers. Sisterhood, budding romance and a Broadway-bound musical are all at risk. But there’s nothing like the sunshine of hits from the American songbook to chase all your cares away! 

Here’s what you can expect at a Sensory-Friendly Performance

Pre-show resources such as a character guide, plot synopsis, photos and video clips, a social story, FAQs, and a “coming to the theatre” video at goodspeed.org/sensory-friendly 

Modifications to lighting and sound | Accepting and inclusive environment | Designated quiet area for people who need a break
