January 5 2017

MPAC presents its first sensory friendly performance, The Rainbow Fish, on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at 4 pm. Tickets are $12-15.  Click here to get your tickets now!

Sensory Friendly performances are supported by a grant from the George A. Ohl, Jr. Trust.

MPAC sensory friendly performances have been designed to create a supportive, welcoming experience for children on the autism spectrum. Each performance features modulated sound and light levels and a relaxed environment where the audience is free to talk, vocalize, and leave and re-enter the seating area. All children and their families are welcome to enjoy these performances.

MPAC will be hosting a “Meet Your Seat” Free Open House on Wednesday, February 1 from 4 pm – 5:30 pm. Come visit the theatre space so you and your child will know what to expect when you attend the performance. No reservation is required.

In the story of The Rainbow Fish, the most beautiful creature in the ocean is asked to sacrifice the one thing that makes her unique in order to share her gifts with those around her. This event is recommended for children ages 4-12.

Sensory-friendly programs such as The Rainbow Fish are part of MPAC’s commitment to reaching all audiences. January also brings the launch of MPAC’s new Performing Arts classes using the methodology of The Miracle Project, the Los Angeles-based organization that utilizes music, dance and theatre to unlock the creativity, personalities, and great potential of children on the autism spectrum and with other special needs.
