    Aladdin - the Musical: special performance
    Disney and Autism Awareness Australia are partnering to present an autism friendly performance of Aladdin - The Musical on Saturday 4 March at 1.30pm.

    This specially adapted performance is suitable for all individuals on the autism spectrum, their family and friends.

    Slight adjustments to the production will include removal of strobe lighting and pyrotechnics, reduction of any jarring sounds and lights focused into the audience, house lights being left slightly up and relaxed exit and entry to the theatre.

    A wonderful opportunity for the whole family to enjoy this beloved Disney classic in a supportive and inclusive environment.

    Tickets go on sale:
    9 am Wednesday 9 November 2016 through www.aladdinthemusical.com.au
