Eastern Michigan University’s Theatre will be presenting Jonathan Graham’s “The Boy Who Loved Monsters and the Girl Who Loved Peas” at the Sponberg Theatre on May 29 and 30 and June 5 and 6 at 7 p.m.
The production chronicles a small boy who loved monsters and a girl who loved peas. EMU Theater calls this a, “hilarious and heartfelt comedy,” that was directed by Patricia Zimmer and recommended for audiences ages 4 and up.
EMU Theatre will work in conjunction with EMU’s Autism Collaborative Center to host two special Sunday matinee performances on May 31 and June 7 at 2 p.m.
The ACC will provide tools and techniques to make these Sunday matinee’s pleasant, including fidget toys and I-need-a-break cards. Families can bring noise reducing headphones, and there will be an I-need-a-break quiet exit that leads to a play area. There will also be sound effects played at a reduced level.
