“What better way to spend a Saturday morning than introducing your child to the live theater experience with characters and stories they love?” said Mark S. Hoebee, Producing Artistic Director at Paper Mill Playhouse.

  

From the theater’s official release:

The Spring 2013 Season of Children’s Programming is listed below. It will include a sensory friendly production of Happily Ever After: A Cinderella Tale designed specifically for children on the autism spectrum or with other developmental disabilities, and planned in cooperation with Autism New Jersey and Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center at Rutgers. The theater environment will be altered for this performance, providing a sensory-friendly, comfortable and judgment-free space that is welcoming for all families.  Additionally, Paper Mill Playhouse will host a free Open House titled "Meet Your Seat!" the day before this performance.  This is an opportunity for children who are new to theater experiences to visit the theater space before the show.
