Relaxed Performances


Our Relaxed Performances are designed and adapted for people who may find a traditional theatre performance setting challenging. 

If you, or someone you'll be visiting Cast with, has a disability, has additional or complex needs, or struggles with sitting in a regular theatre environment, then a Relaxed Performance may be beneficial. 

If you find the theatre overwhelming, ask us about our late comers booths - you can still watch the performance, but in a more private environment away from the main auditorium.

But what is a Relaxed Performance? 

- We keep the house lights up, so it won't get too dark at any point during the performance.

- We leave space for you to move about.

- We have an open door policy, so you can come and go as you need to.

- We turn the volume down, so there are no loud bangs or flashes of light.

- We will never ask anyone to leave any performance for making involuntary noises, but you may feel more comfortable knowing that you're in a relaxed environment. 

- There will always be someone there to help if you need assistance. 

- Ask us about our late comers booths - you can still watch the performance, but in a private environment away from the main auditorium.
