For our 2020-21 season, the April 17, 2021 performance of Manual Cinema’s The Magic City will be a sensory-friendly, relaxed performance, designed to offer a safe, welcoming, and judgement-free environment for audience members on the autism spectrum or with other sensory sensitivities. Support services and accommodations include moderate sound levels, a quiet play area, and social narratives to guide audience members in their visit. 

Single tickets will go on sale in August.
