Theatre Young Kids Enjoy — better known as TYKEs — kicks off its 10th season this weekend with a very special show. "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" is based on the well-known book by Judy Blume. The show will feature professional adult actors bringing to life the first chapter in the "Fudge" line of books.
Of special interest, the performance on Saturday, November 2, at 4:30 p.m. will be a sensory-friendly version of the show specially constructed for children on the autism spectrum. It will feature an extra-relaxed atmosphere with an additional intermission, lower volume levels, adjusted lighting, a "quiet room" nearby, and dairy-free and gluten-free snacks. The sensor-friendly performance is a partnership between TYKEs and AutismUp.
Traditional performances of "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" will take place this week on Saturday at 2 p.m., Sunday, November 3, at 11 a.m. & 2 p.m., and then continues November 9-10 with an ASL-interpreted show on Sunday, November 10, at 11 a.m. Performances take place at the Hart Theatre at the Jewish Community Center, 1200 Edgewood Ave. Tickets cost $15.
