Sensory Open House

Sensory Open House

Flynn Center

  • Saturday, September 15, 2018, 1:00 PM

FREE & open to the public

Everybody Belongs at the Flynn, and we want to make sure you feel welcome and know what to expect when you join us. New experiences can feel intimidating, and we want to help. Drop in anytime during our Open House hours and explore the lobby and theater at your own pace. Check out the Flynn’s sensory toolkits (noise-reducing headphones, weighted blankets, fidgets, and more), meet our friendly Front of House team, sit in the seats, locate bathrooms, visit the balcony, experience simulated lighting and sound levels, ask questions and share strategies with us so we can continue breaking down barriers of access for all members of our community. Designed specifically to support individuals on the autism spectrum or with sensory sensitivities, but open to all.

Sensory Autism and Sensory-Friendly Accommodations: The Flynn Center has been working diligently to break down barriers for audience members with disabilities, with a particular focus on those with sensory-sensitivities (learn more). Some patrons can find the break in routine caused by coming to a performance to be very challenging and even upsetting. With the help of a local special educator, the Flynn has put together a “Flynn Social Story” to share with patrons who may benefit from a little extra preparation for the trip. Please contact us if you would like a copy via email or download it online. Also, please know that while at the Flynn, the staff and volunteers can find you quiet break spaces, provide fidgets, weighted blankets, sunglasses and noise-reducing headphones and other materials that may make patrons of all ages with sensory challenges more comfortable or grounded. Please let us know if we can help in any way! When possible, we can also do pre-show tours to help acclimate to the space prior to the show. Email Kat to discuss any of this!
