Family Program: Sensory Friendly Performance: String City: Nashville’s Tradition of Music and Puppetry

Jul 11, 201902:00 PM - 03:15 PM

2 PM – 3:15 PM

Marionettes, rod puppetry, shadow animation, and an ever-changing set tell the story of country music as it relates to Nashville’s transformation into Music City. Experience this exciting true story through nearly one hundred puppets, ranging from the Staple Singers to Johnny Cash to Taylor Swift. After the performance, explore the museum with a String City scavenger hunt or create a puppet inspired by the show. String City was created by Wishing Chair Productions, the resident puppet theater company at Nashville Public Library, in collaboration with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

While we welcome all families to every String City performance, we recognize challenges families of children with sensory sensitivities may face. This sensory-friendly performance is designed as a relaxed and accepting environment for children on the autism spectrum and with other sensory needs to enjoy alongside all visitors. Movement and reactions to the performance are welcomed, and some sensory modifications are in place.
