Autism Awareness Australia and Disney have partnered to bring this special autism-friendly performance of THE LION KING to Melbourne!

The show is on Saturday, 8 August 2015 at 1.30pm at the Regent Theatre. The show has already been on in Brisbane and Sydney, and has been a huge success.

This specially adapted performance is suitable for people on the autism spectrum and their families, to see this award-winning production in a friendly and supportive environment.

There are a number of changes being made to both the environment and the production itself which we’ve highlighted below:

  • Removal of strobe lighting
  • Reduction of jarring sounds and lights focused into the audience
  • House lights dimmed
  • Flexibility to bring your own snacks
  • Flexibility to leave and enter the theatre as required
  • Trained staff will be on hand, and dedicated quiet and activity areas set up, should anyone need to leave their seats
  • A range of family friendly pricing is offered starting from $50 per ticket
