Are your youngsters getting excited for the Dallas Children Theater’s production of, “Go, Dog. Go!” opening this Friday?

This stage adaptation of P.D. Eastman’s classic children’s book is geared towards the four-year-old-and-up crowd, but for the first year in DCT history, the production will also be tailored for children with autism, Asperger’s, Down’s syndrome, as well as other sensory processing disorders and special needs, according to an announcement from DCT.

With the help of local community members and two partner theaters with experience in developmental challenges — along with a grant from Autism Speaks — DCT will create “a safe and welcoming place for children with sensory differences and other disabilities.”

Such accommodations include leaving the house lights up a few levels higher than for a standard performance and reducing the sound level.  A “Quiet Room” will also be available for children who may need a break from what may be overwhelming sensory input for them.

March 1 is the opening night for the sensory disorder-friendly adaptation of, “Go, Dog. Go!” On this night, tickets will be discounted to $5 per person.

Call 214.978.0110 or click here to purchase tickets, which cost $12-$40.
