From the makers of Grug!
A slightly sideways tale about unexpected friendship, finding where you fit and learning to mix it up a little.
In Mort’s Village everything has its place, every day is the same and everyone likes it that way. Until one morning, crash, boom, bang… down comes BEEP.
What is this annoying interruption to Mort’s breakfast molly melon, who is this noisy robot girl, and how will she find her home?
With Windmill’s trademark design, gentle storytelling, music and puppetry, BEEP tells the story of what happens when someone new comes to town.
Des Moines Performing Arts is excited to continue a sensory-friendly initiative with the 2:00 PM performance of BEEP.
Sensory-friendly performances are geared towards those on the autism spectrum, individuals with other sensory sensitivities and their families. These dedicated performances will contain all the joy of a typical theater setting with a few adjustments to help those in attendance feel more comfortable. This will include alterations to light and sound, a variety of seating options, an environment that will encourage movement and breaks when needed, ASL interpretation, and inclusive staff that will welcome guests from the moment they arrive. Families who do not require these accommodations are still welcome to attend.
â€œIntegrating the arts allows me to bring joy and enthusiasm into my teaching. I see such a difference in my students when we have arts integration in our lesson.â€
