Sensory-Friendly Performances

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.

Thanks to generous, continuing grants from the Anna-Maria Moggio Foundation, and new foundation support from Androscoggin Bank’s Greater Giving Program and The Onion Foundation, Maine State Music Theatre will continue its annual  sensory-friendly performance series this summer by presenting Snow White and The Little Mermaid.

These 50-minutes long musical versions of the familiar fairy tales were created by Marc Robin and MSMT Artistic Director Curt Dale Clark for young audiences.

The performance takes place in the 22 Elm Street Rehearsal Hall – 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.

There is no admission fee for these events but reservations are required. Seating is limited. Call 207-725-8769 to reserve seats.
