Omaha Performing Arts is proud to partner with Disney Theatrical Productions for a sensory friendly performance of Disney’s THE LION KING on Saturday, April 25, 2020 at 2:00 PM at the Orpheum Theater.
This presentation and others like it continue to provide families with members on the autism spectrum, or who have other sensory sensitivities, the opportunity to experience a Broadway production together. Slight adjustments to the production will be implemented, including low house lights, exclusion of strobe lighting and softened sounds. Specially trained volunteers will be available throughout the Orpheum Theater to provide audience support, and the lobby will offer quiet spaces and activity areas for families.
This production is open to the public, but please note customary theater rules will be relaxed. It's okay for viewers to make noise and talk back to the performers. Standing and movement will be accommodated in spaces throughout the theater. Outside items such as prepackaged food and drink, blankets, stuffed animals or other sensory/security items will be allowed in the theater.
Sensory Friendly is Family Friendly.
