sensory friendly theater.

Shine! Theatre introduced Sensory-Friendly programming to the Central Valley in 2017. These performances are specifically modified for patrons with sensory-processing disorders and special needs. Shine! Theatre is committed to a Sensory-Friendly performance with each show, featuring special modifications made to the production as well as the theater itself.


Some of these modifications include:

  • Qualified, trained staff available to assist

  • Quiet spaces around the theater

  • Open seating - all seats are general admission

  • Social stories

  • Adjusted lighting and sound levels

  • Theatre house-lights stay partially illuminated

  • Sensory activities are available during the performance

  • Visual timers in all areas of the theater



For our families, we also make Social Stories available for free downloads. Simply click below.
