Relaxed Performances

Relaxed Performances are available November 20 at 11:00 AM.

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 can expect:

  • 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
  • Calm zones right outside of the experience for guests to take a break if needed
  • Activity areas in the lobby with sensory play
  • Professional teaching staff on hand to gently support 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
  • The normal "rules" of theatregoing do not apply, such as having to keep quiet, be still, or only express your enjoyment by clapping
  • Limited crowds and "seating-holes" to allow space between families
