Adult-Oriented Autism, Sensory-Friendly, Relaxed Performances
This panel session looks at how different theatres around the country are expanding their programming to offer young adults and older audience members on the autism spectrum or with other developmental and cognitive disabilities the opportunity to attend productions with more mature content beyond the family-friendly genre. Hear about four different success stories with adult-oriented shows from TDF with Come From Away on Broadway, December 2, 2017; ZACH Theatre’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, February 24, 2018; Steppenwolf’s The Burn, March 10, 2018 and Roundabout Theatre Company’s Amy and the Orphans, April 11 and 18, 2018

Learning Objectives:
- Differences between preparing for an adult-oriented AF/SF/R performance as opposed to a family-friendly show
- Finding your broader audience of young adults and older audience members

- Evaluating audience response
