THE NEXT GEN features Tortoise Junior and Lil’ Hare in a whole new kind of race, where their adventures lead them into unexpected territory. Old Man Tortoise and Big Daddy Hare must come together despite their differences to find and save their children. What hurdles will they have to overcome to make it to the finish line?

With dazzling visuals, poignant storytelling and the creative use of music from classical to pop, this production brings this tale into a new brilliant light through the artistry of Lightwire Theater.

The sensory-friendly production 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 checklists, social narratives, and “Meet Your Seat” videos. Dayton Live also has designated quiet areas in our venues for patrons to use during the performance.

Trained staff and volunteers are excited for you and your family to join Dayton Live at the theatre. Best for ages 5 and up!

Victoria Theatre is located at 138 N Main St, Dayton, OH 45402
