Title: Accessible performances for the visually and the hearing impaired around the country this month

The busy Holiday season has started! I personally cherish my childhood memories of the fun during this time of the year; the lights, the presents, the food, the music and the special events.  Just last year, I attended A Christmas Carol performance and that was like magic!  I was transported to another time.  I left the theater walking on clouds and feeling inspired and happy.
 
That is why I am so glad I have found many holiday performances accessible to people with sensory disabilities around the country.  Check the following list, and if you are close to any of the venues that offer accessible performances, take your children. If you don't have children, go with your friends and feel like a child again!
