Our relaxed performance of the family musical is taking place at 1.15pm on Thursday 9 December in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

A relaxed performance is where the ambience of the auditorium and theatre 'rules' are relaxed. These performances are ideal for people with learning disabilities or autism, or anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed environment.

Loud noises or music might be turned down or specific movements or lines might be adapted slightly. There is more lighting in the auditorium and a 'chill-out' room with soft seating and activities for audience members to take a break if they need quiet time during the show.

All bookers receive a visual story to help familiarise them with the plot, characters and setting before they arrive at the theatre. You can also find out more about the play before your visit with our BSL synopsis video and audio introduction to the show.

Please call the Box Office on 01789 331111 for more information about this performance and our other assisted performances (midday-6pm UK time, Monday-Friday).
