John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
2700 F Street, NW , Washington, DC 20566

Sponsored by: Bank of America is the Presenting Sponsor of Performances for Young Audiences. WGL is the proud sponsor of the NSO Family Concerts.


Sensory-friendly performances are designed to create a performing arts experience that is welcoming to all families with children with autism or with other disabilities that create sensory sensitivities. Accommodations for these performances include: lower sound level, especially for startling or loud sounds; lights remain on at a low level in the theater during the performance; a reduction of strobe lighting or lighting focused on the audience; patrons are free to talk and leave their seats during the performance; designated quiet areas within the theater; space throughout the theater for standing and movement; limited crowds and visitors at the Kennedy Center during the day and timing of the performance; and Kennedy Center staff trained to be inviting and accommodating to families' needs. To purchase tickets for a sensory-friendly performance, please call the Instant-Charge Service Desk at 202-476-8528 (voice), or visit https://www.kennedy-center.org/pages/accessibility/sensory.
