Sensory-Friendly: Cenicienta - A Bilingual Cinderella Story
Mar 10, 2024
This production is great for all families, especially for people with autism, sensory sensitivities, or other social, learning or cognitive disabilities. You can expect a reduction of loud or jarring sounds, the absence of flashing or strobe lighting on stage, and a judgment-free environment where all patrons are free to vocalize or move around the theatre. At no time will anyone be asked to leave the performance due to vocal reactions, movement, or behaviors related to cognitive/developmental abilities. Patrons will have access to professionally curated resource materials to use in preparation for your visit like checklists, social narratives, and “Meet Your Seat” videos. Dayton Live also has designated quiet areas in our venues for patrons to use during the performance. Our trained staff and volunteers, as well as our partners at Dayton Children’s, are excited for you and your family to join us at the theatre.
Ten-year-old Belinda is a budding poet and loves to tell stories, but when she’s stuck in the basement preparing for a party upstairs that her stepmother and stepsisters will host, she’ll have to get creative. Belinda re-enacts the classic tale of Cinderella, using whatever objects are at her disposal: napkins, teapots, and doilies, to name just a few. With these everyday items, a healthy dose of imagination, and a love of poetry passed down by her father, Belinda imagines a bigger world for herself. She must learn to stand up for herself and take charge of her life and dreams. This captivating bilingual performance is a modern spin on the beloved fairy tale and tackles cultural heritage, family, and the power of language.
It is our hope that this production will make attending the theatre an accessible and enjoyable experience for all.
