Old Town Playhouse Shakespeare performance for Individuals with special needs

March 24 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The Old Town Playhouse, in partnership with the Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District (TBAISD), is pleased to announce a unique sensory-friendly performance of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” on Saturday, March 24, from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. in Traverse City. This special matinee performance is designed to provide audience members with an introduction to the theatre experience for community member’s age 8 to 108 who are on the Autism Spectrum or who may have other considerations that make it difficult to attend a typical theatre event.

This performance will include relaxed house rules such as allowing guests the freedom to get up, move around, and leave whenever necessary. Adaptations to the performance will include lower sound levels, elimination of potentially startling special effects, and setting house lights to a brightness level that allows for way-finding and safety. The playhouse will open its doors at 1:00 p.m. to help guests become familiar with the venue through small-group tours of front- and back-stage theatre spaces, sensory-friendly activities, and open seating. The cast of the production will provide an abbreviated performance of the play at 2:00 p.m., followed by a meet and greet of performers and light refreshments in the lower level of the theatre. This is a free event. Seating is limited and guests are invited to reserve a seat for themselves and one support person. Please RSVP to Michelle Dungjen at 231-620-6443 or or visit for an online reservation option. Reservations are strongly recommended.
