On Saturday, April 2 at 2 p.m., Seattle Rep's first ever sensory-friendly performance will take place with our production of Teenage Dick. Seattle Rep is proud to be certified by Sensory Access, whose goal is to make all events more accessible to those with sensory processing difficulties.

Sensory-friendly performances welcome audiences to engage in an accessible and relaxing theater-going experience. This theatergoing experience is made to cater to people with sensory sensitivities. The autism and neurodivergent communities especially benefit from these performances, where adjustments are made to make your audience experience comfortable.

Some adjustments you can expect that will make this performance an accepting and welcoming environment for all include:

  • Trained ushers, volunteers, and front-of-house staff
  • A large quiet area in the lobby
  • Fidget items available for all audience members
  • Sensory guide available online, and in-person kits available for check out, including noise-reduction headphones
  • House lights slightly raised
  • Loud noises, strobe lights, and other over-stimulating effects reduced or eliminated
  • Assistive devices allowed throughout the performance, including tablets and phones
  • Space to move, talk, make noise, leave your seats, and re-enter the theater throughout the performance

Please note: Teenage Dick is recommended for high school aged youth and adults. This performance contains haze, profanity, blood, depictions of violence, and ableism (including negative stereotypes and slurs). For additional content warnings, including potential spoilers, click here.

In addition to dedicated sensory-friendly performances, all of Seattle Rep’s productions are now sensory accessible.

Seattle Rep also has a wide variety of ticketing options for all price points for every production.
