"The Lion King" Presents Second Autism-Friendly Theatre Performance in September
The Theatre Development Fund's (TDF) second Autism Theatre Initiative performance of Disney's "The Lion King" will be presented on Sept. 30 in New York City and has sold out in less than 24 hours. The Sept. 30th show will feature an autism-friendly performance. The first autism-friendly performance of "The Lion King" was held in Oct. 2011 and Disney's "Mary Poppins" held an autism-friendly performance in the spring of this year.
For these special performances, TDF purchases all seats in the theatre and sells them to families whose members include individuals who are on the autism spectrum. The show, according to the press release, "is performed in a friendly, supportive environment. Slight adjustments to the production include reduction of any jarring sounds or strobe lights focused into the audience. In the theatre lobby, there will be designated quiet areas, staffed with autism experts, if anyone needs to leave his or her seats during the performance."
TDF is also working with touring productions to provide autism-friendly performances outside of Manhattan.
