Seahawk FAM

Sensory Friendly Performance 

Kenan Auditorium strives to make its performances accessible to all our patrons. For this year's Seahawk FAM series, we're introducing three Sensory-friendly performances: Make Trouble Theatre's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shana Tucker's Chamber Soul and Wilmington Symphony Orchestra's Smaller Bites Trio.

Sensory-friendly performances are open to all families, but are designed to create a sensory experience.

Accommodations for these performances include:

  • Lower sound level, especially for startling or loud sounds;
  • Lights remain on a low level in the theater during the performance;
  • Patrons are free to talk and leave their seats during the performance;
  • Designated safe space within the auditorium; 
  • Kenan staff trained to be inviting and accommodating to families' needs.
