RELAXED PERFORMANCES

Relaxed Performances are for anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed environment—this can include but is not limited to people with autism, sensory sensitivities, learning disabilities, dementia as well as those living with anxiety or who have experienced trauma. Our Relaxed Performances focus on adapting the theatre environment and preparing the audience by developing pre-show resources. Lighting and sound may be adjusted, and the doors will remain open to allow patrons to take a break in a designated quiet area. 

Malthouse Theatre's Relaxed Pack for Because The Night is available here.
