Sydney Opera House: Access friendly Babies Proms

The Sydney Opera House formally launched its Accessability Program last week (photos from the event are here). Accessible performances have been offered from time to time, and the program has both grown in the number of performances, and the depth of support it offered.  It is good to see that Lifestart, with such a substantial history of supporting children with disabilities and their families through innovative approaches, is involved on the ground.

Bookings are now open for:


BABIES PROMS: COUNTRY KIDS - ACCESS FRIENDLY PERFORMANCE 
14 May 2015 
Studio, Sydney Opera House 
Inspired by Australia’s long tradition of country music and the bush balladeers of old, this concert will explore the sound and movements famous and familiar across the country. 
Sing along to country favourites and learn a line dance for a Boot Scootin’ Boogie!
What is an Access-friendly Performance?
Access-friendly performances are designed to ensure everyone is able to enjoy this unique theatre experience in a supportive, friendly and relaxed environment. In partnership with Lifestart, the Accessible Babies Proms performances provide a mixed play activity area, supported by the Lifestart team with a range of activities for all ages and abilities, and is available for families between 10:30am-12pm in the foyer area.
Sydney Opera House will provide a downloadable pre-visit social story, support aids (including fidget toys, weighted lap pads, textured mats) and an open door policy ...

All details and booking information about this event is available on the Sydney Opera House website, here.
