One of the region’s leading live entertainment venues, Milton Keynes Theatre showcases the best West End and touring productions from across the UK. Offering a wide and varied programme including first class dance, drama, musicals, opera, comedy and children’s shows.
In conjunction with the National Autistic Society based here in Milton Keynes, we've put together a Social Story for those on the autistic spectrum.
