This production is great for all families, especially for children with an autism spectrum disorder, sensory sensitivity, and other special needs. You can expect a reduction of loud or jarring sounds, the absence of flashing or strobe lighting on stage, modification of house lights during the performance, and a judgment-free environment where all patrons are free to vocalize or move around the theatre. At no time will anyone be asked to leave the performance due to vocal reactions, movement, or behaviors related to cognitive/developmental abilities.
Comedian Robert Post barely survived middle school. One of his childhood report cards in Columbus, Ohio, gave a hint as to how his future might unfold. Struggling because of various learning disabilities, he found that making people laugh saved him. Not amused by Robert’s antics, his teacher created a whole new column of categories describing maladaptive behavior. The result: a dazzling performance career that continues to defy categories. In this multimedia performance, kids talk to kids in a compelling, funny and educational show. Dealing with real issues affecting students today including social media, testing, bullying and peer pressure these video testimonials by kids and their advocates (along with a generous dose of Post’s signature humor) is sure to resonate with school and public audiences alike.
