Relaxed performances are specifically created to be welcoming to audience members who may benefit from a more relaxed environment, including, but not limited to, those on the Autism Spectrum, with a sensory or communication disorder, a learning disability, dementia, a medical challenge, guardians with babes-in-arms, and anyone else who would like to attend.
We are taking a more relaxed approach to front-of-house etiquette, meaning exit and re-entry to the theatre and sound and movement within the audience is totally okay. Sound and lighting effects will be less intense and the auditorium light will stay on at a low level during the show.
We have created a social story/visual guide PDF as a resource. This guide will walk audience members through the experience of attending the theatre step-by-step with photos and descriptions.
Accessible parking is available with a shuttle service to take you from street level to the Springer Theatre entrance. Both theatres have wheelchair seating and accessible washrooms. The Springer is equipped with infrared hearing assistance listening systems provided free of charge.
