EVERYONE SHOULD GET THE CHANCE TO ENJOY LIVE THEATRE.
On Saturday, September 3, 2016, Bye Bye Birdie will be performed with a special audience in mind—people with sensory processing issues. This family-friendly performance is designed and intended for those who are on the autism spectrum or who have other sensory issues. At this performance, the theatre environment will be altered, providing a safe, friendly, comfortable and judgment-free zone that is welcoming for all. This performance is recommended for those families and caregivers who are familiar with and accepting of behaviors exhibited by some individuals with autism—and would like to bring a loved one to the theatre.

WHAT IS BYE BYE BIRDIE ABOUT?
Army-bound rock star Conrad Birdie is the talk of the town in Sweet Apple, Ohio, where he is scheduled to give his farewell performance before he goes off to boot camp. But his appearance in Sweet Apple has created a teen-age crisis for new “steadies” Hugo and Kim. Kim just won the chance to give Birdie one last kiss before he goes. Kids, parents, and show folk collide in the Goodspeed debut of this hip-swiveling musical comedy set in the dawn of the sensational 60s. READ THE FULL SYNOPSIS
