The Lion King – Autism friendly performance

The Lion King – Autism friendly performance

We were delighted to partner with Disney to bring you Australia’s first ever autism friendly performances of THE LION KING!

We held 3 highly successful performances in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne in 2014 and 2015, entertaining 5,000 people on the autism spectrum and their families. 

This specially adapted performance was suitable for people on the autism spectrum and their families, to see the award-winning production in a friendly and supportive environment. Trained staff were on hand, and dedicated quiet and activity areas set up, to help families enjoy their theatre experience. 

Slight adjustments to the production included removal of strobe lighting, reduction of any jarring sounds and lights focused into the audience, house lights being dimmed and flexibility to bring your own snacks.

We hope this is the beginning of many more special performances to come!
