What is a Relaxed Performance?
  • Relaxed performances provide a supportive environment which allows for noise and movement in the auditorium whilst you’re enjoying a live performance.
  • This performance is captioned and audio described. If you would like to access the audio description, headsets can be collected from the Foyer – please speak to a member of the Front of House team on your arrival. If you would like to access captioning, best viewing is available in the Dress Circle.
  • If you’d like a break from the show and are sitting in the Stalls, Dress Circle or Baylis Circle, there will be several chill out areas in the front of house spaces.
  • If you’re sitting in the Stage Stalls, you’ll only be able to leave your seats during the interval due to moving scenery.
  • The lights in the auditorium will be kept on so it doesn’t get too dark.
  • We also make small changes to the lights and sound levels – there will still be some lighting effects in this production but there is no repetitive flashing in the show.
How much are tickets?

Tickets are £12–£65 and can be booked on our website – if you have access requirements, please see the information below.
