Relaxed Performance – Tuesday 8 January, 6pm
We are delighted to present a specially adapted and relaxed performance of Aladdin at the Alhambra Theatre.
Relaxed Performances are specifically designed to welcome people with an Autistic Spectrum Condition, learning disability or sensory and communication disorders into theatres, to give those who otherwise might feel excluded the chance to experience live theatre. We aim to create a welcoming, less formal atmosphere to help reduce anxiety levels.
Lighting and special effects will be slightly altered - for example removing strobes and flashing lights and reducing very loud noises, however the content of the show will not be specifically changed.
It is a specialist provision created to provide an opportunity for people who would otherwise find it difficult to come to see a show – for example people who make involuntary noise, or are likely to need to talk a lot, or move around. During a regular performance this can disturb the other audience members, and the show, but at a relaxed performance it’s fine. Our front of house staff are there to support and manage this behaviour, rather than stop it. We recommend you talk to our Group Sales Team as they can advise the best way to accommodate your party. Please call on 01274 437788.
