The Lion King

April 20, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Hennepin Theatre Trust is proud to offer a sensory-friendly performance of Disney’s The Lion King. This performance is specifically designed for individuals with sensory differences, cognitive or developmental disabilities, and those who benefit from a relaxed theater environment along with their families and caregivers. With the partnership of Fraser, the show will be performed in a supportive and judgment-free environment.

Accommodations at this performance include:

  • Lower sound levels, especially for startling or intense sounds.
  • Theatre lights on at a low level throughout the performance.
  • Standing and movement accommodated in spaces throughout the theatre.
  • Designated sensory break areas throughout the theatre.
  • Trained volunteers and professionals on hand during the entire performance.
  • Sensory supports (fidgets, earplugs, noise-canceling ear-muffs) available in the lobby before the show.
  • Online and printed guidance materials about the show experience.
  • Audience members are welcome to bring their own handheld sensory tools (e.g., fidgets), seat cushions, comfort objects and extra support items to the show.
