Relaxed performances are specifically altered to be sensitive to patrons who might benefit from a more relaxed environment, including those with a wide range of social, sensory, or educational needs.

A minimum of one performance for every show in the Fringe Theatre Season and Fringe Theatre Spotlight program are designated as relaxed performances. All relaxed performance tickets are 100% Pay What You Will.

Specifically, relaxed performances will:

  • welcome children of all ages
  • be understanding of patrons who make noise
  • be understanding of patrons who may need to stand, walk, or leave and re-enter the performance
  • provide pre-show information such as plot summary and when to expect loud noises
  • extreme special effects, such as strobe lights, are reduced or softened
  • auditorium lights only slightly dimmed
  • often accommodate an earlier start time

Patrons considering attending a relaxed performance should still consider show description, as the subject matter of some shows may not be suitable for all audiences.
