Relaxed Environment Performances

On Thursday 27 August, at 14:15, the performance of Carousel will be Low Stimulus.

At a Low Stimulus performance, we will modify the environment for those who might benefit from a quieter environment, which might include those with dementia, anxiety related conditions or autism, although we appreciate that each of these have a range of differing needs and this might not suit everyone. The playing time of Carousel is approximately 2hours 50minutes so it is, in any event, likely to be most suitable for adults. Whilst this is a musical (and therefore instrumental and sung music will be present throughout), we will adjust any sudden loud noises which may occur during the performance.

As the theatre is outdoors, the performance is in daylight. We will also keep the doors to the auditorium open to enable those who wish to leave/return to their seats during the performance to do so.

Paper towels will be available in the toilets, rather than hand dryers, and a quiet space will be made available during the performance.

Following the performance there will be a reminiscence session in the Robert Atkins Studio, just off the picnic lawn, where customers can go to talk about the show, or any memories that it might have unlocked.

Whilst tickets for this performance can be booked online, we appreciate that patrons attending this Low Stimulus performance may have specific seating and access requirements. Therefore, in order for us to understand your needs and to apply the access rate, please contact boxoffice@openairtheatre.com to book.
