Special Autism-Friendly Performance of The Grinch!
The Old Globe offers an autism-friendly performance of the holiday classic Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Following in the footsteps of successful autism-friendly performances of The Lion King and Mary Poppins on Broadway, The Grinch is performed in a welcoming and supportive environment for children on the autism spectrum and their families. Slight adjustments are made to the production including fewer loud noises and flashing lights that may be challenging for some audience members. In addition to the adjustments made to the show, additional features help make the experience safer and more enjoyable for children with autism and other sensitivity issues. To better prepare children for the performance, a pre-show visit to the Globe is offered to familiarize children with Balboa Park and the Old Globe Theatre. An online social story is also available for parents to view and print at home that outlines in words and pictures the experience that families will undergo during their trip to see Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The lobby of the theatre serves as a quiet area for children that needed to leave their seat during the show. On-site volunteers are on hand to assist families as needed as they arrive at the Old Globe Theatre and throughout the performance.
