The Rambunctious Theatre Co. is committed to being an all-inclusive performance company. We have created sensory friendly performances in the past for audiences with those needs. Our next sensory friendly performance will be "Little Mermaid Jr." in Russell Theater on February 7th at 6:30pm. The show will be free, donations are appreciated, and all donations will go to benefit the Fairfax County Day Prom! To find out about last year's day prom, see this news story.

We are so excited to have received such positive feedback about our Sensory Friendly show! In order to ensure those who come receive a seat, we are creating an event for attendees to submit an RSVP for the show. An RSVP is required to attend, and there is no cost to do so. We will post more information on how to RSVP within a week. Thank you!

For this performance, these are the features of the sensory friendly show:

The Social Story - In your program you will find a Social Story. The Social Story gives you some information about the show and options for what to do whenever you feel nervous or uncomfortable.

Break Space - For this Sensory Friendly performance, a break space will be located outside of the theater in the main hallway. It will be a secluded area blocked off with screens for privacy. Inside the break space will have bean bags, fun chairs, a weighted blanket, and other fidgets for you to use. If others want to use it, we will have a timer for helping to take turns.
