Hale Center Theater offers a 'sensory-friendly' performance

The stage at Hale Center Theatre
Layton Construction
The "sensory-friendly" performance is the first of its kind at Hale Center Theatre.

Hale Center Theatre is offering a “sensory-friendly” version of its production of “The Little Mermaid” for audience members with sensitivities to light and sound or a decreased ability to remain silent or still during a performance.

The show, which will be held on December 3rd, is the first of its kind to be offered by the theater.

Throughout the production, volume levels will be reduced for sound effects, flashing lights will be removed, and ushers will be available to assist audience members when needed.

Anna grew up begging her mom to play music instead of public radio over the car stereo on the way to school. Now, she loves radio and the power of storytelling through sound. While she is happy to report on anything from dance concerts to laughter practice, her main focus at UPR is political reporting. She is studying Journalism and Political Science at Utah State University and wants to work in political communication after she graduates. In her free time, she spends time with her rescue dog Quigley and enjoys rock climbing.
