Segerstrom Center’s Family Discovery Series continues with Cahoots NI: Egg on March 19th and 20th in Samueli Theater, with the 10am March 19th performance being sensory friendly.

Egg is told through the medium of physical theatre, illusion and music. It is a sad, funny and delightful tale that explores the theme of leaving the nest, a theme that resonates as strongly with the adults as it does with children. This gives Egg its real emotional power. The production is a magical experience, sharing the life of the little bird characters in their nest with the audience and telling a story of friendship, wonder and tender loving care. The 10 a.m. performance on Saturday, March 19 will be sensory-friendly.

Sensory-friendly precautions are taken to reduce sound levels, particularly loud or startling sounds; reduce overwhelming stage lighting; provide low ambient lighting in the theater throughout the performance so patrons are able to see should they need to move around or exit the theater; leave some seats unsold to allow extra room for patrons who may need to move or exit during the performance;provide social story and other preparatory materials to parents and children so they know what to expect from the performance; allow use of iPads, other tablet devices and smart phones if needed as a communication device for a child; and break spaces for those who might feel overwhelmed and need a break from the performance.

Audiences are encouraged to arrive an hour before the performance for free creative activities. The Center’s Education Department offers these enriching experiences to provide young people and their families more opportunities to play together creatively. Studies show that this is critical in helping to develop the ability to think and problem solve.
