Renmore Pantomime Society is very pleased to announce that following the success of last year’s sensory friendly performance of Cinderella that our 2016 production of Jack and the Beanstalk will also include a sensory friendly performance for children with autism spectrum disorders and other sensory difficulties. This sensory friendly performance of Jack and the Beanstalk will take place on Sunday the 3rd January 2016 at 12:00 noon.

A number of changes will be made to this performance to make the trip to the theatre more enjoyable for children with autism, allowing the whole family to enjoy this feast of seasonal entertainment. To provide a friendly welcoming atmosphere, this dedicated sensory friendly performance is adapted to include reduced volume, customised lighting and a tailored environment to meet the needs of the children and their families.

 A limited number of tickets will be sold to maintain a comfortable audience size for this performance. In addition, extra staff and volunteers will be on hand to provide assistance and support. Designated “chill out zones” will also be available to the audience, providing a safe space for children to take a break from the show if required. A social story will be made available shortly for parents to download and prepare children for what to expect before they attend.

Renmore’s 37th annual Pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk promises to be a spectacular adventure of laughter, music and song, and is directed by award-winning twins Brian & Seán Power.

It runs from December 29th until January 10th at the Town Hall Theatre Galway.

Tickets available from Town Hall Theatre on 091-569777 or
