Relaxed Performances are for anyone who will benefit from a more ‘relaxed environment’, more specifically audience members with a disability. The doors to the theatre remain open, and sound and lighting cues are adjusted. There is a relaxed attitude to movement and noise. Attendees can leave the auditorium at any time for a break.
Similarly, a designated quiet area is provided where a visual story is available to help prepare for the visit. It describes the storyline, characters and arriving at the venue, so the experience becomes familiar and entertaining.
The seating capacity for this event is also reduced to allow for space and movement. On the 12th of January 2019, six families collected free tickets to the Kids tennis day at Rod Laver arena during the celebrated Australian Open. The spectacular day included watching some of the world’s best tennis players like grand finalist Novak Djokovic and former singles world number one Victoria Azarenka.
The kids also got to witness special appearance performances from PJ Masks & Peppa Pig and listened as ARIA award winner Guy Sebastian sang his heart out for all to hear.
