Dayton Ballet Sensory-Friendly Nutcracker Performance

Friday, December 20, 2019 | 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Schuster Center

The Dayton Ballet will be performing a Sensory-Friendly showing of The Nutcracker on December 20 starting at 2:00pm.

What makes this performance sensory-friendly? This production is great for all families, especially for children with an autism spectrum disorder, sensory sensitivity, and other special needs. You can expect a reduction of loud or jarring sounds, the absence of flashing or strobe lighting on stage, modification of house lights during the performance, and a judgment-free environment where all patrons are free to vocalize or move around the theatre. At no time will anyone be asked to leave the performance due to vocal reactions, movement, or behaviors related to cognitive/developmental abilities.

See a walk-through video guide below. If you have any questions, call Ticket Center Stage at (888) 228-3630. Tickets can be purchased online at
