Sensory Friendly- Sleeping Beauty: The Story of Briar Rose







Join Dayton Ballet as they present the story of Sleeping Beauty with a few creative twists. This original presentation of the classical tale is draped lusciously in nature, with settings of whimsical gardens and ominous forests and fairies named after flowers from which they pull their virtues. Evil enters in the form of a vulturelike forest villain named Cinereous, and his trickery turns sweet Briar Rose into our beloved Sleeping Beauty, who is saved by first love's kiss.

This production is specifically designed for children and adults with autism spectrum disorder, sensory processing diagnoses, and other special needs. You can expect a reduction of loud or jarring sounds, the absence of flashing or strobe lighting on stage, modification of house lights during the performance, and a judgment-free, relaxed theater environment in which all patrons can feel free to vocalize or move around if needed.
