Relaxed Performances

Jun 27, 2019 - Jun 27, 2019 | Sylvan Adams Theatre

The Segal Centre is offering a special relaxed perfromance for the June 27th, 7:00 P.M. performance of A Century Songbook.

A Relaxed Performance is designed to make the theatre space more comfortable and welcoming to audience members who will benefit from a more relaxed sensory experience and casual environment, including (but not limited to) patrons with an Autism Spectrum disorder, a sensory processing disorder, or a learning disability.

This performance is for patrons of all ages and abilities, other audience members who may benefit from relaxed performances include young children, people who experience anxiety, or people who are not comfortable with the conventions of a traditional theatre space. There will be a more relaxed attitude to noise and movement within the theatre during the performance.

Some minor production changes may be made to reduce the intensity of light, sound and other potentially startling effects. Additional support tools will also be made available, such as visual stories, virtual tours, and familiarization visits.

Please take a moment to note that this performance is the same production as all other performances with a few adjustments.

  • The show is 82 minutes long. There is no intermission.
  • If you need, you may move around and/or exit the theatre and return to your seat at any time. If you need help, ask an usher.

  • There will be a live band playing loud music and actors singing on stage. If needed, you may wear noise cancelling headphones or earplugs. If you do not have your own, an usher will be happy to supply them to you.
