The Old Globe offered a sensory-friendly performance of the Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! on Saturday, December 1, 2018, at 10:30 a.m.
Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas will be performed for children and adults on the autism spectrum and their families, as well as for other families with special needs that may appreciate the welcoming and supportive environment this performance provides. Other sensory-friendly performances have included Into the Woods and Dr. Seuss's The Lorax.
In order to make the experience safer and more enjoyable for theatregoers with autism and other sensitivity issues, slight adjustments are made to the production including:
An online social story will is available for parents to view and print at home that outlines in words and pictures the experience that families will have during their trip to see Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Families can make an appointment to “meet their seat” and familiarize themselves with Balboa Park and the Old Globe Theatre.
