Autism-Friendly Performance Of Cinderella Coming To Boston Opera House

BOSTON (CBS) – After the recent success of the autism-friendly production of the Lion King, a Boston theater company is opening the curtain on a new show.

Broadway in Boston hosted a special performance of the Lion King in October that was designed to put on a show everyone could enjoy.

During the matinee performance, house lights were at half capacity, sounds were at a lower intensity, there were no strobe lights, and the only people in attendance were those in need of a "sensory-free show" along with their family and friends.

After seeing how well the performance was received, Broadway in Boston and Autism Speaks announced on Tuesday that they will once again team up this fall.

An autism-friendly performance of Rodgers & Hammersteins's Cinderella has been scheduled for Oct. 4 of this year at the Boston Opera House.

Specially priced tickets for the performance are already on sale and can be purchased online.

For more information on the performance, visit the Autism Speaks website.
