First Stage announces sensory-friendly performances

Join us for sensory-friendly performances of two beloved fairytales, told only as First Stage can. Adapted from our engaging First Steps series, these performances are designed to serve children on the autism spectrum and their families.  Families are invited to enjoy special accommodations including a limited number of attendees, lower volume and a host of family resources and support before, during and after the performance.

THE THREE LITTLE PIGS
Saturday, November 15 at 3:30 p.m.

Milwaukee Youth Arts Center
The pigpen is starting to look like a real sty, and Mama says it’s time to leave and build something new. Help Cha, Siu, and Bao watch for wolves while they use hay, sticks, and bricks to make it in a big, bad world. Filled with humor, this gleeful adventure will huff, and puff, and blow you away!

SAVE THE DATE:
GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS
Saturday, February 14 at 3:30 p.m.

Milwaukee Youth Arts Center
On a trip through the forest, Goldilocks ventures into a seemingly uninhabited house.  She makes herself at home, trying all the comforts of home to find what is just right.  Little does she know the house belongs to a family of three bears, who are not too pleased to find their unexpected guest.  Join us on an exciting musical journey through this well-loved fairytale.

TICKETS are $14 per person and can be purchased by phone from the First Stage box office at (414) 267-2961.
