Relaxed performances for schools

State Theatre New Jersey’s Relaxed Performances allow students 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 calming area with soft seating, fidget toys, and activities.
  • Ushers and volunteers who have been specially trained to assist you.
  •  A social narrative, provided in advance, to help you prepare your students for your trip to the theater.
