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 Jack and the Beanstalk and The Very Fractured Tale of Robin Hood.

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

SATURDAY, JULY 16 • 6 – 7 PM

When Jack is forced to sell his only pal, Angus the Cow, he can’t accept just any price. So, when a mysterious man offers him magic beans, how could he refuse? In this fractured fairy-tale filled with bovine best friends, imprisoned harpists, hungry mothers, pining giant spouses, rapidly descending behemoths and a boy whose dreams are as big as the sky, we see that if you believe, anything is possible!

Book, Music, & Lyrics by MARC ROBIN & CURT DALE CLARK

In this World Premiere, audiences will ride along with Robin Hood on his heroic adventures as he robs from the rich to give to the poor…sort of. Join a very technologically-challenged Robin Hood, and his band of merry people, as they take on a very spoiled Prince who only cares about his YouTube followers.

Book, Music, and Lyrics by RANDALL FRIZADO. Based on the novel by HOWARD PYLE
