Sensory- Friendly Performance: Peter Pan Jr

Saturday, May 16, 2015
 at 2:00 pm – (youtheater)

It’s the timeless tale about a boy who wouldn’t grow up. The score includes classic Disney songs, such as “You Can Fly,” “The Second Star to the Right” and “Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life for Me.” Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Neverland. The adventure features the Lost Boys, singing Mermaids, dancing Indians and of course the infamous pirate, Captain Hook!

Annual Household Membership

Children are special gifts. Many of us search for that perfect toy car, doll, video game, or gift card to give a child for birthdays and holidays. At the Autism Society Northwestern Pennsylvania, we have a great gift idea for the growing number of families and professionals helping those with Autism…an annual membership. 

This membership is a gift to include the sensory and social family outings for free or at reduced cost to many local sites and events in Erie.  We also offer member-only and member appreciation events. 

The cost for the membership is only $25 per household. 

In addition to the events and great support from other families and children, the benefits of community resources are abundant.  

Don't forget the grandparents!  A perfect way to include grandparents all year long.

Contact the office at (814) 455-3540 if you would like to gift a membership for a family.
