Relaxed Performances

Relaxed Performances are open, welcoming, and accessible to all who want to experience shows in a comfortable and low key style. Relaxed Performances will have slight adaptations to the experience to offer anyone, including those with autism and developmental, sensory or communication differences, a way to engage with the show in whatever way feels good to them. 

When attending a Relaxed Performance, you may experience:

  • Lower volume levels and/or reduction of sudden sounds
  • Slight lighting modifications to decrease extreme visual stimulus
  • Flexibility to enter and exit during the show
  • Spaces right outside of the experience for guests to take a break if needed
  • Quiet areas with sensory bins, tactile opportunities and books
  • Professional teaching staff on hand to gently assist with wandering, defensive or quiet guests
  • A judgement-free “no shushing” experience where you’re free to wiggle, talk, laugh, and otherwise engage freely with the experience at your comfort level
