Make Way For Ducklings: The Musical (Sensory-Friendly Performance)
Special modifications have been made to Orlando REP’s production of Make Way For Ducklings: The Musical for this Sensory-Friendly performance. Volunteer helpers are stationed in the lobby and throughout the theatre to assist patrons as they are seated. Adjustments have been made to the show’s lighting and sound effects. A quiet room is available, should patrons need to leave the theatre at any time.
A Social Story, a resource guide for parents and children, is also available for download, so patrons can get a feel for the theatre experience before the day of the show
About The Show
Based on the classic Caldecott Medal-winning book by Robert McCloskey, this charming musical introduces us to Mr. and Mrs. Mallard, who are exhausted from their search for a home when they land in the Boston Public Garden. Surprised by a few conditions in the Garden, the Mallards move on to continue their search until their baby ducklings are born. When the ducklings begin to explore the world around them, the challenges of parenthood are illuminated as we see it is the people who make a place home. Adapted by Sandra Eskin and Michael Bobbitt with music and lyrics by William Yanesh.
Runtime: 70 minutes
