RELAXED PERFORMANCE FRIDAY 2PM
Our Friday Matinee is Perfect for anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed performance environment – including those with an autism spectrum condition, learning disability or sensory sensitivities.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT A RELAXED SHOW?
The lights in the audience will be up slightly so that it’s not too dark and the sound will be a bit quieter.
You can make noise during the show and are encouraged to show your emotions without judgement
You can come and go as you please in and out of the auditorium
If you need a break You can chill out in the foyer areas in our quiet zones
We make small changes to the lights and sound (such as taking out strobes lights and loud bangs and pyrotechnics) so that the performance is more accessible if you have sensory sensitivities.
We will also be bringing out some of the characters to meet you before the show to help with familiarity.
But the show and the story do not change so you still get to see the show as a whole!
