THE TWELVE DATES OF CHRISTMAS
By Ginna Hoben

Relaxed performances are designed for anyone who might benefit from a more casual audience environment, including people with sensory processing conditions, autistic people, disabled people, parents with babes in arms, and more! There is a laid-back approach to noise and movement within the theatre space, which may be a good introductory experience for new theatre patrons.

What to expect

  • Audience members are welcome to move around, and to go in and out of the theatre when they need a break from the show
  • House doors remain open, and house lights remain on at a dimmed level
  • Music and sound levels as well as lights and projections are more subdued
  • Designated standing areas are available inside the theatre
  • Communication boards and use of other technology, such as cell phones and tablets, are welcome (however, we ask that you not take photos)
  • A Relaxation Station in the lobby
  • Patrons are asked to avoid using fragrances and other scented products
