Welcome to Civic Theater of Greater Lafayette:
Sensory Friendly Performances

Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is proud to offer sensory friendly shows for almost every show in each season! Sensory friendly showings offer the opportunity to see our performances with fewer dramatic changes to the environment. This means that the house lights stay up, the sound cues are turned down, our performer’s mics are off, and the lobby stays open! Audience members are welcome to come and go from their seats as needed during the performances. In addition, the door to the lobby remains open and the show will be up on the TV in the lobby for viewing!

What doesn’t change is the show itself. At the heart of every sensory friendly show is inclusivity and accessibility for all audience members regardless of age and familiarity with live theater. The themes, language, heart, and action of all our sensory friendly shows stay the same. If we can offer you any other accommodations for an upcoming show, please reach out to us at! We cannot wait to see you here!
