Milwaukee, WI – September 27, 2022 – First Stage, one of the nation’s leading theaters for young people and families, is committed to broadening its reach and deepening its impact throughout the community.

First Stage’s Sensory Friendly Performances are sponsored in part by UPAF Kasey’s Fund.

These performances feature a welcoming environment including modified lighting and sound, modified house rules to allow additional movement or talking during the performance and available quiet areas staffed by educators experienced with the care of young people on the autism spectrum or with other developmental differences. A Social Story to outline the experience at the performance is also provided.
