The Relaxed Performance is suitable for customers who find it difficult to cope with a traditional theatre atmosphere due to having learning difficulties or conditions such as Autism spectrum disorder.
This performance may also appeal to parents or schools with children particularly sensitive to loud noises or who dislike the dark.
The performance is open to everyone, but there is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement and elements of the show will be adapted to suit the setting, for example, the lights will not be fully dimmed, the auditorium doors will remain open and loud noises or ‘scary’ lighting effects may be removed. There will also be alternative activities in the theatre foyers for when children do not wish to stay in the auditorium.
If you require any further information or would like to make a booking for the Relaxed Performance, please telephone our Ticket Office on 01793 524481.
