Text on the left says "Relaxed Performances". On the right is an icon with a letter 'R' in a circle with two waves below.

What is a Relaxed Performance?

Relaxed performances (RPs) aim to meet the needs of autistic and other neurodiverse people and people with disabilities, while also being suitable for families or first-time theatregoers.

RPs foster a casual approach to the traditional theatre experience, rethinking expectations for audience members in a performance space. Within this relaxed space, people are welcome to move around, make noise or step out to a quiet area. RP modifies lighting and sound, in addition to consulting people with disabilities, to ensure everyone feels welcome and safe. Babes in arms (children aged two and under) are also welcome to our relaxed performances.

Pricing:
Adult: $47 per person
18 and under: $31 per person
