Autism Friendly Show

Following the success of The Lion King’s first dedicated autism-friendly performance in April last year, Disney’s The Lion King is set to present a second such performance in May 2014 at the Lyceum Theatre in London.

Working closely with the National Autistic Society (NAS) The UK’s leading charity for people with autism and their families, and after following a successful programme at The Lion King in New York, The Walt Disney Company adapted the performance to make it more suitable to those affected by autism.

A visit to a musical which is as big as The Lion King and in one of London’s busiest theatre could prove an overwhelming experience for those with autism who have sensory differences.To alleviate this, the performance has undergone some modifications to the booking process, performance and theatre environment.

“We are so proud to now be presenting the second of our dedicated autism friendly performances in the West End, enabling new audiences to enjoy the thrill of musical theatre. We thank our creative staff whose hard work and dedication helps make it all possible.” Said Thomas Schumacher, producer and president Disney Theatrical Productions.

The autism friendly performance will take place on Sunday May, 4 at 1:30pm. Tickets are on sale now.
