Relaxed Performance

Relaxed performances are intended specifically to be sensitive to and welcoming of patrons who may benefit from a more relaxed or casual environment, including (but not limited to) members of the disability or neurodiverse community, those on the autism spectrum, those with sensory sensitivities or anyone who may want extra support attending. The sounds and lights at a relaxed performance are slightly modified to be less startling, and the house lights are kept on at a very low level throughout the performance to allow for safe movement around the theatre. Audience members are free to move in and out of their seats and the theatre. In addition, a quiet space has been set aside in the lobby for those who need it during the performance.

Attending a relaxed performance doesn’t mean you will see a different show. The same level of quality is maintained in all of our performances, and any adjustments made to the technical aspects are designed to be unobtrusive and stay true to the spirit and enjoyment of the play envisioned by the creative team.

A Venue Guide and Fact Sheet will be prepared to guide you through the experience of attending the show at PTE. The Fact Sheet is prepared specifically for each show. You'll find it on the page of the specific play you're planning to attend.

Tickets for those for whom the Relaxed Performance is the best choice are available for $25, with a complimentary companion seat, and can be booked by calling the PTE Box Office at 204-942-5483 or by emailing the Box Office.
