This low-sensory performance welcomes all families, including those with children with autism or with other developmental or intellectual disabilities that create sensory sensitivities. Be entertained by baffling magic in a relaxed, judgment-free environment.

The total time of the performance is 1 hour, which does not include an intermission.
