The theatre will have a reduced audience of approximately 1/3 capacity. This allows for more space between guests as well as the ability to stand up, move around, or stim during the performance. There will be some members of the media in the audience to review the show. We are encouraged to stay for Act 1 which will run 2 pm -3:30 pm. We ask that people arrive to the theatre around 1:45 to get settled and familiar with the space.
Please note: the volume of the orchestra and the lighting will not be altered for the performance. This is a test run before the show is offered to general admission. If you have sound or light sensitivities, we encourage you to bring your own support to make the performance enjoyable for yourself.

About the Goh Ballet Company:
Dance should be a part of every child’s upbringing; it is a vital form of human expression. Nurturing and cultivating this physical and emotional communication is the core mission of the Goh Ballet Academy.
Through participation in dance, we are able to unveil and foster hidden talents and inspire creative thinkers. The holistic experience and training of dance connects the mind and body and draws out confidence, independence and artistic expression that contribute not only to the fulfillment of a dance career, but also to valuable life skills.
Goh Ballet aims to provide the optimal level of dance instruction to encourage the development of a child’s individual bests, fostered in an environment of like-minded peers in the pursuit of personal excellence.
AutismBC provides free, safe, and supportive community events where everyone can be themselves. These events are an opportunity for our members to come together, talk and, have fun with others who understand and share similar life experiences. Our goal is to reduce financial barriers to recreation and promote inclusion for people on the autism spectrum and their families.
