THE FUN: Don your finest Beauty or Beast costume and come be a part of a tale as old as time. DCT has plans to sweep you away to a fairy tale land of adventure filled with food, friends and unforgettable fun. You’ll learn to dance the waltz just like royalty and discover the way to set a proper place setting just like Ms. Potts and Chip would require. Of course, photo ops abound with all of the Disney characters in the beautiful enchanted castle. Make your own commemorative stained glass window before the night is over and then join our DJ for an end-of-the-night dance party for the ages. As always, there’ll be lots of take-home goodies and a feast fit for adult and child kings and queens.
THE CAUSE: The party benefits DCT's sensory-friendly plays and classes that welcome and include children on the autism spectrum and others with developmental disabilities. Sensory-friendly performances feature a relaxed, accepting atmosphere with friendly, trained helpers; reduced sound; increased lighting in the seating area; and a custom lighting plan to reduce harsh stage lighting. Amply staffed sensory-friendly acting classes build social-emotional skills and self-confidence. Your support facilitates discounted pricing that, since 2014, has given more than 5,800 children with developmental delays and their family members a unique and rare opportunity to benefit from live theater and connect with the community. After all, doesn't everyone deserve to experience the educational rewards of live theater as well as a chance to bond with their family through such an outing?
