"The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales"

Kingsbury Hall

Performed by University of Utah Youth Theatre

Performed by the talented young actors of U of U Youth Theatre and based on the wildly popular Caldecott-winning book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith, The Stinky Cheese Man turns the tradition of the fairy tale on its head. With fun music and witty narration about the Really Ugly Duckling (who grows up to be a Really Ugly Duck), Cinderumplestiltskin, and other fairy tale favorites – not to mention the Stinky Cheese Man himself – this play will entertain and delight the whole family!

Saturday, March 18 • 11 a.m. Sensory friendly performance.

Sensory Friendly performances are designed to create an atmosphere at performing arts events that is friendly and welcoming to families with children on the autism spectrum or other disabilities that create sensory sensitivities.

Though all families are welcome at both performances, the 11AM Saturday Sensory Friendly performance will include the following:

• You can choose your seating in the theatre based on your needs whether you want to be close or far from the stage.
• A guide to visiting the theatre to help prepare children – view printable PDF file here
• Seating capacity is limited so there is space for patrons to move about and choose seats in the area most suitable for their needs.
• Staff are aware of the special accommodations that may be needed.
• A question and answer session with the cast after the performance.
