Sensory Friendly Production
THE ADVENTURES OF FLAT STANLEY - Sensory Friendly Production - The beloved children's book, written by Jeff Brown in 1964, has become a literary and pop cultural phenomenon, delighting readers and travelers all around the world. And now, Timothy Allen McDonald, the writer behind Willy Wonka and James and the Giant Peach, has taken everyone's favorite two-dimensional hero and given him a new life.
OCTC and the City of Ocean City area committed to increasing access and inclusion for our community's children and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders and other sensory, social, and cognitive disabilities. To provide a supportive and welcoming environment for children and families, this dedicated Sensory Friendly performance includes:
- Reduction of loud and jarring sounds
- Reductions in flashing or strobe lights
- Modification of the house lights during the performance
- Accommodated house rules: audience members are free to talk or move during the show
- Extra staff and volunteer support.
Audience members are welcome to bring their own manipulatives, headphones, seat cushions, comfort objects, and extra support items to the show. Families may select their own seats! Doors will open at 12:30 for a 1:00 pm Curtain.
