Houston—June 26, 2012—Origin is proud to announce its support of The Hobby Center’s Lion King Autism Theater Initiative, the first ever autism-friendly performance of a Broadway show in Houston. Origin’s gift to client and friend The Hobby Center will underwrite more than 50 tickets to the landmark event. “Art, in all its forms, is very close to our hearts. The opportunity to introduce children to live theater, and to give deserving families such an inspirational experience was irresistible,” said Origin partner Shawn Collier.
Through designated quiet areas, a supportive audience environment and adjustments to light and sound, this special performance of Disney’s The Lion King is more accessible to children on the autism spectrum and their families than a traditional performance. Tickets for the Saturday, July 28th performance are on sale at TheHobbyCenter.org. Additional online resource materials are also available at http://www.thehobbycenter.org/LKAutismResources.
