A Relaxed Performance is intended to be sensitive to and accepting of any audience member who may benefit from a more relaxed environment and additionally to patrons who require an ALS interpreter. These performances are open to all patrons; however, they are intentionally modified to accommodate patrons with sensory and vestibular sensitivities, anxiety, dementia, autism spectrum disorders, learning differences, or challenges attending the theater and provide an opportunity for the deaf and hard of hearing community. The performances might also feel more welcoming for families with children, who may need the ability to get up and move around, or take a break in the lobby.
Please note: While the environment is more welcoming to those with caregiver needs, please check the show content to determine what is best for your family. Small modifications will be made to the performance, which may include reducing the volume of loud noises and effects, keeping the house lights partially on and having a relaxed attitude toward sound and movement in the audience.
We encourage all patrons to attend with the understanding that there may be more movement and distractions due to others’ needs.
