Relaxed Performances

Season 2022 – 2023 will now feature Relaxed Performances on the the third Sunday of every show.

What is a Relaxed Performance?

A Relaxed Performance is intended to be sensitive to and accepting of any audience member who may benefit from a more relaxed environment. 

Who can attend?

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. 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 content for each individual show to determine what is best for your family.

What should I expect?

Small modifications will be made to the performance, which may include reducing the volume of loud noises and effects, eliminating strobe lights, keeping the house lights on and having a relaxed attitude toward sound and movement in the audience. We also encourage patrons to attend with the understanding that there be more movement and distractions due to the physical needs of others.
