BlackRock Social Story

This is our main stage where you will see the show. The lights dim when the show is ready to start and you may hear announcements or music. You can stay in your seat during the show or get up and go to a more comfortable place back in the lobby.

This is our Concessions area where we sell drinks and snacks.  This is a great place to relax and take a break before, during or after a show.  On Sensory-Friendly Performance days, we fill this area with comfortable things to sit on, toys and screens so you can take a break or have some privacy if you need it!
