UNION COUNTY- Tickets are still available for the Sensory Friendly Theater series, a combination of performances specially designed for children with autism and related disabilities at the Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway.
As part of Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella’s “Putting People First” initiative, the series is designed according to guidelines that help to reduce disturbances for youngsters who experience heightened sensory sensitivity.
Union County worked with Autism Friendly Spaces, LLC to design the series and Paper Mill Playhouse and the Children’s Specialized Hospital assisted in making the program possible.
The series of three performances includes Tom Chapin and Friends on June 10, Little Red Riding Hood and Other Stories presented by Pushcart Players on Oct. 7, and Pinocchio presented by the New Jersey Ballet on Nov. 4. All seats are $8 per person and performances begin promptly at 2 p.m.
The Union County Performing Arts Center is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation operating in the historic Rahway Theatre. Located in downtown Rahway at 1601 Irving Street, this historic landmark is the cornerstone of the Rahway Arts District. For more information, visit www.ucpac.org or call 1-732-499-8226
