Meet two modern-day hip-hop street performers, Jake and Will, who bring the stories of the Brother Grimmz to life with a contemporary urban spin, as they and a few of their friends turn records and dance circles around some of the most beloved and well-known fairy tales collected by the famous German brothers of old.
Featured tales include “Cinderella,” “Hansel and Gretel,” “The Frog Prince,” “Rapunzel,” “Snow White & the Seven Shawties,” “The Brave Little Tailor,” “The Six Swans,” and “The Elves and the Shoemaker.” These tales include R&B, pop, reggae, and rap, with a little Run-D.M.C.-inspired rock and roll.
Grimmz Sensory Performance February 12
The sensory-friendly Grimmz production on February 12 is great for all families, especially for people with autism, sensory sensitivities, or other social, learning or cognitive disabilities. You can expect a reduction of loud or jarring sounds, the absence of flashing or strobe lighting on stage, modification of house lights during the performance, and a judgment-free environment where all patrons are free to vocalize or move around the theatre.
At no time will anyone be asked to leave the performance due to vocal reactions, movement, or behaviors related to cognitive/developmental abilities. Patrons will have access to professionally curated resource materials to use in preparation for your visit like Social Stories, Character Sheets, Schedules, and “Meet Your Seat” videos. Dayton Live also has designated quiet areas in our venues for patrons to use during the performance. Our trained staff and volunteers, as well as our partners at Dayton Children’s, are excited for you and your family to join us at the theatre.
Best for ages 7 and up!
Dayton Live is located at 1 West 2nd Street Dayton
