Relaxed performances are created to make the audience experience more accessible. This is because formal performance settings demand some specific behaviours from audience members (like sitting still and quietly in the dark for a long time) that can exclude some people.
We will have some elements of a relaxed performance environment available for ALL shows, this includes:
We have soft seating areas in the front, and the first balcony is available for people that need to move around. For people needing re entry we will have ushers available to support leaving and returning to any area in the audience.
We have inclusion kits available to audience members which include noise-cancelling headphones and sunglasses to mitigate noise and light intensity. These kits are sanitized after each use. If you have borrowed one from the box office please return it after the performance.
Our relaxed performance elements on Friday November 12th also invite audience members to make noise as needed. Please refrain from “Shhhshhing” other audience members, as we want this space to be safe if you need or want to vocalize. Low-level audience lighting will be available throughout this performance.
On Friday, November 12th we have ASL interpreters provided, they will be providing interpretation for the performances and the post show chat.
Single stall Gender Inclusive washrooms are on the second floor, above the radio station. To access them, take the spiral staircase or the elevator to the right of the theatre, next to the radio station.
