Relaxed performances for families

State Theatre New Jersey’s Relaxed Performances allow families with children on the autism spectrum or with other sensory sensitivities to enjoy high-quality live entertainment in a safe, welcoming, sensory-friendly environment.

At a Relaxed Performance you will find:

  • Lighting and sound levels that are modulated to reduce anxiety and stress.
  • A judgment-free environment, with a relaxed attitude toward noise and moving around during the show.
  • A separate break area with soft seating, fidget toys, and activities.
  • Ushers and volunteers who have been specially trained to assist you.
  • A social story, provided in advance, to help you prepare your child for your trip to the theater.


Karma Foundation

Relaxed Performances made possible in part by The Karma Foundation with additional support from The Thomas and Agnes Carvel Foundation and  The Wawa Foundation.

Eden Autism
