A.R.T. invites families with members who are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder or other sensory sensitivities to a special performance of Charlotte's Web.

Adapted by Joseph Robinette • Based on the story by E.B. White • Directed by Dmitry Troyanovsky
On the Arable family farm, a miracle is about to happen. In order to save young Wilbur from the butcher, Charlotte—a very special spider—hatches a plan to show the world how “radiant” one pig can be in the eyes of a true friend. Adapted from E.B. White’s beloved children’s classic and directed by A.R.T. Institute alumnus Dmitry Troyanovsky ('00), (James and the Giant Peach), Charlotte’s Web will feature graduate students from the A.R.T. Institute for Advanced Theater Training Class of 2018. Click here for more information about the production.

ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SHOW
Environmental adjustments to create a friendly, supportive environment, as well as alterations to the performance, include:

• The house lights will remain dimmed during the performance, rather than completely off.
• The intensity of lighting and sound effects will be reduced.
• A staffed quiet area will be available in the lobby for children who need to take a break from the show.
• There will be a relaxed and inclusive atmosphere where patrons can feel comfortable during the performance and enter or exit the theater during the performance, with the assistance of ushers.
• Trained volunteers will be on hand to assist with patron needs.
• Tablets and smartphones will be permitted to help non-verbal children communicate.
• Adjustments will be made to the script and acting to maximize comprehension of the story.
