All proceeds from the picnic event will support BTC’s Sensory-Friendly performance of Snow White at The Bushnell on April 21, 2024. The mission of BTC’s Sensory-Friendly performances is to provide a safe and respectful environment for those with a disability, sensory sensitivity, or any other challenges that might make them feel uncomfortable at a ballet performance.

Since the launch of The Sensory-Friendly Ballet program last season, BTC discovered that for many of the families, it was their first time attending a ballet and the first time that many felt invited. BTC aims to keep ticket costs low to make the performances as accessible as possible, and funds raised from events like the Snow White Picnic help BTC attain this goal.

The Snow White Picnic is perfect for the whole family. Your attendance will support other families so that they too will have the opportunity to enjoy something together!
