Sensory-Friendly performances are intended to make theatre spaces more inclusive and accessible to audience members and their families with varying sensory sensitivities who prefer to experience performances without the conventions of a traditional theatre setting. Sensory Friendly performances are welcome to all audiences. Certain adjustments are made to make our production inclusive to sensory sensitivities. Adjustments include:
Accessible parking is available at the south side of the Northbrook Park District Leisure Center directly outside Northbrook Theatre. The accessible parking area is within a short sidewalk distance from the theatre entrance doors.
Accessible seating is available in the first row of our theatre in all sections for those who require seating on the ground level. If you are using a wheelchair, we remove the existing seat in the front row to allow for a more spacious viewing experience.
If you prefer to be seated prior to general seating, check-in with the house manager when you arrive.
Assisted Listening Devices
Assisted listening devices are available free of charge, on a first-come-first-served basis at the Box Office for any performance. When you arrive, visit the Box Office to request your device.
Large Print Programs
Large-print programs are available to download prior to the performance date and available the day of the performance at the Box Office.
We are happy to make reasonable modifications to assist anyone with special needs who wants to attend a theatre performance. Contact Performing Arts Manager, Erin Sweet at email@example.com or 847-291-2995 in advance to discuss any necessary accommodation at our theatre.
