    Accessibility & Inclusivity
    Please be aware that during a Youtheatre performance your students may be seated alongside students from other schools. Our Youtheatre audiences are very diverse, and represent a range of ages, grades, school districts, and personal backgrounds. Some may have attended the theatre many times, while for others, this may be their first theatre experience. Additionally, every year the North Shore Center is proud to host students with a range of physical disabilities, as well as cognitive differences during Youtheatre programming. We ask all our patrons, young and old audiences alike, to practice good theatre etiquette, and to be patient, respectful, and welcoming to all audience members attending the performance. We thank you for your compassion and commitment to making the arts accessible to all audiences.
