Beauty and the Beast – Sensory Friendly

MAY 23, 1:30 PM

Maine State Music Theatre is committed to helping young audiences experience the magic of theatre by providing Theatre for Young Audiences performances each season. However, a standard theatrical experience may not always be accessible for children with social, cognitive, or physical challenges. This year Maine State Music Theatre will continue its annual sensory-friendly performance series by presenting Beauty and the Beast.

This 50-minute long musical version of the familiar story was created by Marc Robin and MSMT Artistic Director Curt Dale Clark for young audiences. This performance takes place in the 22 Elm Street Rehearsal Hall in Brunswick, Maine – a performance environment that is safe and accessible for children who may be uncomfortable in the theatre’s more traditional main stage setting at the 600-seat Pickard Theater.

The project gives the theatre the opportunity to demonstrate further its commitment to be an inclusive, supportive community providing theatrical experience for all patrons.

Funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts. Also funded by a grant by the Anna-Maria Moggio Foundation.
