Autism Alliance of Michigan and Olympia Entertainment are happy to announce the return of a autism-friendly Sesame Street Live performance for the fourth year at the Fox Theatre on Saturday, February 6, at 5:30 p.m. Accommodations will make the theater experience more enjoyable for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other sensory difficulties.
Tickets ($15, $25, $35 and $65) are on sale now and are available to all members of the public. Patrons who are specifically interested in the autism-friendly performance and can purchase specially priced tickets ($10, $20 and $30) by calling the Olympia Entertainment Group Sales department at 313-471-3099 or ordering online at www.olympiaentertainment.com/aaomssl.
Working in conjunction with VEE Corporation (the producers of Sesame Street Live) and Autism Alliance of Michigan, Olympia Entertainment has pledged to create a fun, inviting environment for families with members who have ASD while providing the opportunity to experience a live performance of Sesame Street Live “Let’s Dance” in its entirety.
The presentation will not differ from the theater’s regular performance. However, the theater is providing production notes to parents ahead of time, to prepare their children for what to expect, should anything be a potential trigger. Quiet areas will be set up inside the venue to allow families to take a break for a few minutes and extra spacing will be incorporated in some seating areas to allow for room to move around.
