Did you know Gosford Musical Society is offering a sensory friendly performance of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?

The performance on Wednesday 10th July 10.30am will be sensory friendly.

Please find details below of what to expect:
At our sensory friendly performance, we encourage audience members to be completely themselves in order to feel comfortable feel free to make sounds, move your body, fidget, stim and use noise-cancelling headphones.

We will not use bells in the foyer area to announce show time, but will instead have staff give verbal indication that it is time for patrons to find their seats in the auditorium.
The Don Craig Room will be open as a dedicated quiet space for patrons and will have dim lighting to assist those needing a space away from the busy and noisy foyer.

During the performance, lighting will remain on in the auditorium at a dim level, and the volume of the show and sound effects will be lower as well to accommodate those with sensory sensitivities.

We will have a pre-show welcome where the main characters will come out on stage and introduce themselves and will explain some of the effects of the show (e.g.
smoke, sound effects), particularly highlighting scenes that may have higher sensory impact.

The show will go for approximately two hours and forty minutes including a 20 minute interval.

We hope that the inclusion of a sensory friendly performance means that more people can comfortably access the theatre and see this wonderful show.
