The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales - Onstage
Friday June 4 2021
JUNE 9TH & JUNE 12TH ARE SENSORY-FRIENDLY PERFORMANCES
THURS, FRI, SAT EVENINGS - $27 WED EVENINGS - $23 SUN MATINEES - $23 KIDS 18 & under - $17
Though the characters may be familiar, each of your favorite storybook fables is uproariously derailed in this adaptation of Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith's quintessential children's book of fractured fairy tales. Everything from "Chicken Little" to "The Gingerbread Man" gets a complete makeover. Fun music and witty narration accompany the likes of ineloquent giants, sassy barnyard animals, colossal cow pies, and enough stinky cheese to go around.
June 9th & June 12th performances will be designated as "Sensory Friendly" shows.
"Sensory Friendly" or "Relaxed" performances are designed to provide a supportive and judgment-free environment for people affected by sensory processing or social skills challenges so they may enjoy the shared experience of live theatre. With support and guidance from our sponsor Speech Therapy Solutions Montana, A Charlie Brown Christmas will be an opportunity for Grandstreet to open our doors a little wider and welcome many members of our community who previously may not have been comfortable at the theatre. "Sensory Friendly" and "Relaxed" performances are a growing trend in theatres across the world and Grandstreet is very grateful to Speech Therapy Solutions Montana and their Director Daylinda Radley for helping us launch this new program.
Some of our accommodations may include:
Lower sound level.
Lights remain on at a low level in the theatre during the performance.
A reduction of strobe lighting or lighting focused on the audience.
Patrons are free to talk and leave their seats during the performance.
Designated quiet and activity areas within the theatre.
Space throughout the theatre for standing and movement.
Audience members are welcome to bring their own manipulatives, headphones, seat cushions, comfort objects, and extra support items to the show.
Use of communication tools including electronic devices can be used with headphones during the performance.
Extra staff and volunteer support including specialized therapists will be on hand to support families in need.
