Rebecca School Visits The Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater!


What a great time the Rebecca School had visiting the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater’s Autism Friendly performance of The Princess, the emperor, and the Duck in Center Park on March 21st, 2017. The overall experience was wonderful and memorable for our students. This was all made possible by the thoughtfulness and preparation of the staff at the theater, the Parks Department, and Historic House Trust.

Accommodations included closer drop off site, dimmed lighting, and access to sensory space. We can’t wait to visit again!
