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. The sensory-friendly performance project gives the theatre the opportunity to demonstrate further its commitment to be an inclusive, supportive community providing theatrical experience for all patrons. This season MSMT presents a sensory-friendly version of Rapunzel and The 3 Little Pigs.

We are excited to announce that all sensory performances will take place at the Pickard Theatre this year. We will continue to have a quiet room set up with sensory toys, activity booklets, and study guides!

There is no admission fee for these events but reservations are required.
