Relaxed Performance – Tuesday 11 January 2022, 6pm

We are delighted to present a specially adapted and relaxed performance of Sleeping Beauty 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.

At this performance our front of house and box office team are there to provide all the support you need to enjoy the show, including providing break-out spaces and chill-out areas outside the auditorium. You don’t need to worry about shouting out or making involuntary noises, everyone at the theatre will be there to have a great time together in a relaxed and informal environment. We’re here to help every step of the way, call the box office on 01274 432000 and our team will help plan your magical trip to the pantomime.
