Sensory adjustments include:
- House lights remain at half brightness during the entire performance.
- Fewer tickets are sold to allow you to spread out in seating.
- Entry and Exit to the theater is not restricted. You may come and go as you please.
- Volunteers are stationed throughout the audience, lobby and outside the Keshet Center for the Arts to assist audience members.
