A message from Sheffield Theatres
Our Relaxed Performances are mainstream theatre shows that we adapt in various ways to make them accessible to young people with learning disabilities.
Most importantly we ask every audience member and staff member to be tolerant and accepting of the fact that young people with learning disabilities will express enjoyment of the show in different ways – the attitude to noise and movement is relaxed, and we ask anyone who buys a ticket to be supportive of this.
We send out a detailed pre- show information pack to help you prepare for your visit.
We make changes to the seating arrangement to create extra wheelchair spaces, and we do not sell every seat so that people who want to move around can do so. We also make slight changes to the sound and lighting effects if necessary, and the lights never go completely dark in the auditorium.
For anyone who needs to leave the show, we have a small, quiet chill out area just outside the auditorium. You can return to the show when you are ready and if you need to leave and return several times that is fine.
After the show we offer you the chance to meet the actors and have a photo taken with them.
We believe everyone has the right to take part in high quality arts experiences whether or not they have a disability.
We welcome customers with disabilities to all our theatre shows; however, a Relaxed Performance helps to make a trip to the theatre an enjoyable and positive experience rather than a stressful one.
