Relaxed Performance

Wed 28 Aug, 3pm

‘Relaxed Performances’ are specifically designed to welcome people with an Autistic Spectrum Condition, learning disability or sensory and communication disorders into theatres to give those who otherwise might feel excluded the chance to experience live theatre. They have a less formal, more supportive atmosphere in order to reduce anxiety levels.  It is a specialist provision created to provide an opportunity for people who would otherwise find it difficult to come to see a show, for example people who make involuntary noise, or are likely to need to talk a lot, or move around. During a regular performance this can disturb the other audience members, and the show, but at a relaxed performance it’s fine.

Lighting and special effects will be slightly altered, for example removing strobes and flashing lights and reducing very loud noises, however the content of the show will not be specifically changed.

The auditorium may possibly be quite noisy, with people coming in and out. Our ushers are there to support and manage this behaviour, rather than stop it. 

Northern Stage is fully accessible. The theatre has three lifts providing access to all parts of the building, including the accessible toilets, baby changing facilities, stages 2 & 3 and the backstage area. Buggy parking is available outside Stage 3. To discuss any access needs, please call our Box Office on 0191 230 5151.
