Maine State Music Theatre Presents

Sensory Friendly Performances for Children

BRUNSWICK – Maine State Music Theatre provides Theatre for Young Audiences performances each season but this summer, thanks to a generous grant from the Anna-Maria Moggio Foundation, the theater is also creating sensory-friendly performances of its children’s shows. 

 Sensory-friendly performances of Robin and Clark’s “Sleeping Beauty” on Saturday, June 10, at 7:30 p.m. and “Alice in Wonderland” on Sunday, Aug. 20, at 10 a.m. are designed for families with children with autism or other disabilities that create sensory sensitivities.

 “We are committed to helping young audiences experience the magic of theater, says MSMT Artistic Director Curt Dale Clark, who also co-wrote the adaptations of the classic children’s shows. “However, a standard theatrical experience may not always be accessible for children with social, cognitive, or physical challenges.”

 Both performances will be held in the rehearsal hall at 22 Elm St. “This is a performance environment that is safe and accessible for children who may be uncomfortable in the theater’s more traditional main-stage setting,” Clark said.

There is no admission fee for these events, but reserved seating is required. Seating is limited. Call 207-725-8769 to reserve seats. FMI: Visit
