Come and celebrate 70 years of The Westenders at Theatr Brycheiniog this January as they present a Relaxed Performance of their spell binding Pantomime, Sleeping Beauty! A show full of comedy and romance, bursting with energetic numbers, spectacular scenery and mesmerising special effects that’s guaranteed to entertain the whole family! This is an adaption of their regular show to extend a warm welcome to anyone who might find it difficult to follow the usual conventions of theatre etiquette and especially those on the autistic spectrum, those who may make involuntary noises, or anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed environment. During a relaxed performance House Lights are left on low and strobe lighting may be removed. Loud noises or explosions are either taken out entirely or reduced. The audience is free to go in and out as needed and latecomer rules are relaxed. Making noise during the performance is not discouraged. There are additional staff members on hand to assist as required and the cast and crew has awareness training before the performance. Chill-out areas are provided for anyone who may become overwhelmed by the performance. The house will open earlier to give everyone plenty of time to get to their seats. People with a learning or physical disability, autistic spectrum condition, or sensory or communication disorder are especially welcome. This performance is open to people of all ages.
