Accessibility

Waukesha Civic Theatre is committed to equitable practices for our patrons with disabilities. WCT works to provide sensory- and autism-friendly theatre performances as well as provide assisted listening equipment and accessible seating. Learn more about Sensory-Friendly Performances and theatre accessibility.

Sensory-Friendly Performances

Enjoy a performance where families with children or adults who need sensory accommodations can share the experience of seeing family-friendly theatre. These performances feature a welcoming environment including lower sound, lights up, and available quiet areas staffed by educators experienced with the care of students with autism and other developmental differences. Sensory Kits with social stories will be available upon request.
