A relaxed show is designed to welcome anyone who might find visiting the theatre a bit overwhelming. A relaxed show involves bringing down the volume, reducing loud or surprising sound effects, keeping auditorium lighting on at a low level throughout and the theatre doors will remain open to allow audience members to move out of the theatre if needed. There are no cuts made to the show, we just make some small adjustments to the technical aspects so it’s a more gentle experience.Unfortunately, only a limited number of wheelchair/accessible seats will be available for this performance. 

If you require accessible seating, please email info@harlequintheatre.co.nz for more information as to availability.
