WHAT IS A “RELAXED PERFORMANCE”?

 

Relaxed performances (RPs) are specially-adjusted sensory-friendly shows designed to create a welcoming theatre experience for individuals with a wide range of sensory, learning, and communication differences, and their families and friends. In addition to people on the autism spectrum, those with other neurological differences (ADAD, social anxiety, OCD, and agoraphobia), can and have been served by these relaxed performances.
