We will also have an Advance Entry Sensory Friendly Performance of But Not the Hippopotamus at 9am - REGISTRATION REQUIRED - LIMITED SEATING at 9am. Children and their families will be able to participate in several pre-show activities such as making paper bag puppets, getting to explore the space, and getting to know the characters!  The performance will begin at 9:15am in the building lobby. The show runs about 15 minutes, without an intermission.  Children will be able to sit on color circles, so that if they get up and move around they go back to their own circle.

This will be a more relaxed performance-children are encouraged to move around, interact with the characters as much or as little as they want, and are welcome to enter and re-enter the theatre at any point. Modifications have been made to reduce sensory stimuli.

A Social Story and more details will be sent out closer to the performance for those who registered so families can plan accordingly
