The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is proud to present this very special performance of WICKED. The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is committed to making theater accessible to children and adults on the autism spectrum, and their families. To create an autism-friendly setting, the shows are performed in a friendly, supportive environment for an audience of families and friends with children or adults who are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or other sensitivities. For these special performances, the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust purchases every seat in the theater for sale at discount prices exclusively to families, groups, schools, etc. whose members include individuals on the autism spectrum. Pittsburgh will be the first city outside of New York to offer WICKED in this form.
Slight adjustments to the production will include reduction of jarring sounds or strobe lights focused into the audience. You will enjoy a Broadway theater experience in a judgement free environment. Staffed quiet and play areas will be open in the lobby before and during the performance. Specially trained volunteers will provide audience support.
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is proud to offer special prices to allow all patrons a chance to see a Broadway show with their family and friends. Only members of the community who have a family member or friend on the Autism spectrum or who are in need of a sensory-friendly environment themselves may purchase tickets to this performance. We welcome family and friends to experience the show together.
