Frequently Asked Questions
My child or pupil struggles to sit still and quietly during a show, will this be a problem?
This show is very interactive and is non-verbal. It has been designed for children/teenagers who are not comfortable sitting still and being quiet. We encourage noise!
We have not been to the theatre before and are worried my child or pupil will not like it or find it engaging.
This show is a perfect introduction to the theatre for young people who haven’t been before. The low audience number means the show is tailored for each person and how they react, it is a very flexible environment. The show has been made with young people who have autism, so has been created around their interests and what they find engaging, it uses a very sensory approach.
My child is a wheelchair user and has complex needs, (they do not have autism) can they come?
The show has been designed primarily for young people who have profound autism. It is wheelchair accessible and we are open to all different types of needs, but please be aware it was created with young people with profound autism in mind.
Is this show open to children without disabilities?
No, sorry. But we can recommend some brilliant theatre for children at the venues we’re working with.
We are worried about how we will get to the show.
If you have any concerns about your transport route, please contact us directly at email address? and we will help you.
My child or pupil can have quite extreme reactions or challenging behaviour.
Sound Symphony has been designed for young people who have profound autism. All the performers, staff and crew are fully trained to deal with challenging behaviour and extreme reactions. We will have a quiet space that is separate to the show if it gets too much for your young person at any point. They will also be able to leave and re-enter at any point.
My child is under 8 years old but is autistic, can they come?
Sound Symphony has been designed for young people over the age of 8, so we don’t recommend it for younger children.
