VERMILLION COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A round of applause with a different sound is coming to a local high school.

This year South Vermillion High School is performing Beauty and the Beast.

Two of the shows will be traditional but a third showing will be "sensory sensitive.”

This is a special type of performance that caters to those with light and sound sensitivity. It's ideal for people with autism, and elderly audience members with sensitivity to light and sound.

Student actors say they're thrilled to do such an inclusive performance.

"Everyone's super excited about it,” explained Halea Chubb, performing senior. “We're actually going to rehearse a bit, because we have to change so much of the show to fit the needs, that we all are just so excited for this."

The sensory sensitive performance will happen at 10:30 a.m. on April 28.
