Autism Friendly Show

“We are thrilled this special performance has been added to the schedule because it’s a strong signal of inclusion. Many individuals and families affected by autism face obstacles in enjoying the same experiences that many in our society take for granted, especially around the holiday season. The best present anyone can receive during the holiday season is to be included and valued—mission accomplished.”Russ Kenn, Executive Director, New England Chapter Autism Speaks

2015 was another year of the Urban Nutcracker creating more and more access to as many people possible. 2014 was the year of its first ever Autism Friendly Show, which is designed for members of the community who have forms of Autism to be as comfortable as possible–with convenience, extra staffing, pleasant lighting, and soft sounds in mind. The show was a tremendous success with a huge amount of audience appreciation, and we are proud to be doing it again for 2016!
