Sensory Friendly & Inclusive Performance
WHAT IS A SENSORY-FRIENDLY PERFORMANCE?
Sensory-friendly and inclusive performances are designed to provide a supportive and judgment-free environment for people affected by sensory processing challenges so they may enjoy the shared experience of live theatre.

Broadway Inclusion Program
STG’s Broadway Inclusion Program provides theatre arts programming to neurodivergent and/or disabled community members and their families and caregivers. Participants tend to be between 8-50 years old, but all ages and abilities are welcome!
Participants meet once a week to explore musical theatre and movement-based activities in a creative and safe environment. At the end of each quarter, participants present a final share, where friends and family are invited to observe and participate. This program is now run via livestream, recorded classes, and in-person. For more information click here.
