Introducing StoryBook Theater’s first ever sensory-friendly performances


Dear Friend,

Have you passed up family theater because your child has different sensory needs? No more! StoryBook Theater, in partnership with Safeco Insurance Fund, is working to make theater accessible for children with developmental challenges and special needs. Local community members with experience in these areas are working with us to make StoryBook Theater a safe and welcoming place for children with sensory differences and other disabilities.

We are offering our first sensory-friendly productions on January 27th at Renton Carco Theatre and February 4th at Kirkland Performance Center. We invite you to bring your whole family to see the play for only $5 per person.

In order to adapt our musicals to be sensory-friendly, we plan to leave the house lights up a few levels higher than for a standard production, reduce the sound level, as well as offer a “quiet space” for children who may need a break from what may be overwhelming sensory input for them. Friendly, supportive staff and community volunteers will minimize stress and offer whatever help you may need to facilitate your theater experience.

If you have any questions, we are ready to take your call. We truly look forward to having you as our guest at the theater.


Lani Brockman, Executive Director of Studio East/StoryBook Theater
