Relaxed Performance
Tuesday, December 26 at noon

Relaxed performances or sensory friendly performances are designed to make shows more welcoming to audience members who may experience challenges in a regular theatre setting. This includes people with autism spectrum disorder, learning disorders, sensory concerns, and first-time theatregoers. But of course, all are welcome!

Relaxed Performance Modifications

The performance will have simple modifications to accommodate a variety of audiences.

  • Before the performance starts and throughout, the house lights will be lit at a low level to allow patrons to enter and exit the theatre comfortably.
  • Sound levels will be altered to account for sensory sensitivities.
  • There will be rooms upstairs (studio 1) and downstairs (studio 3) available to take a break if need be during the show.
  • MTYP has a Quiet Room that will be available. The Quiet Room is a sound-proof room at the back of the theatre where you can see and hear the show fro
