Civic presents inclusive performance

0

The Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre will offer an inclusive performance of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” at 2 p.m. Jan. 6 at The Tarkington in Carmel.

An inclusive performance includes accommodations for sensory sensitivities, mobility issues and other special needs. Slight modifications to the production will make the experience accessible for audience members with sensory differences, according to the news release.

Some elements include keeping the house lights up, adjusting overwhelming sound effects, adjusting house rules for talking and moving, additional seating options for those with mobility devices and an American Sign Language interpreter upon request.

“Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” runs from Dec. 15 to Jan. 7.

Lasley

In 2014, the Civic Theatre offered the first inclusive performance in the state with “The Cat in the Hat.”

“Presenting an inclusive performance of one of our mainstage shows has always been the plan,” said Michael Lasley, Civic Theatre executive artistic director. “Not every show is suitable, either because of length or content. When we began offering these adjusted performances for ‘Cat in the Hat’ four years ago, it was always in the back of my mind that the perfect show to offer from the main season was ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.’ The production is under two hours, colorful and fast-paced. It’s an engaging performance for all ages and interests, so it is the perfect title to offer for this important program. We are so pleased to create a safe and reduced-stress environment for all family members to enjoy our holiday presentation together.”
