Kathy Baas Sensory-Friendly Performance Information

Join us on July 15th at 1:00pm for a FREE special performance! We will be implementing several modifications such as leaving house lights on, allowing audience members to talk and freely express themselves, permission to enter and exit the theatre as needed, reduced light and sound cues, warning of potentially intense scenes, access to a quiet room and more! Open to any audience members who feel these modifications would make the theatrical experience more enjoyable.

Play Synopsis

This very funny play is based on the very funny book, Dragons Love Tacos. With the help of a narrator, a kid, and a loyal dog, audiences find out how to throw the ultimate dragon party. If you give a dragon a taco, you can be sure they will be incredibly happy. So if you want to make friends with dragons the best thing to do is host a taco party. Just be sure not to serve the tacos with spicy salsa. Blah! Dragons just can't stand it. Only one drop of hot sauce will cause their ears to smoke, sparks to fly, and (perhaps worst of all) tummy trouble. Oh no! But don't worry. You'll learn about dragons' favorite ingredients and hear constant reminders to avoid that hot sauce. What could go wrong? The taco party is a huge success...that is until the not-so-mild, mild taco sauce is introduced to the storyline. BTE's production features delightful dragon costumes, surprising props, lots of silly dances...and TACOS!! Fun for the whole family.
