Second Relaxed Performance Announced

20 Feb 2015

Following the sold-out success of the first relaxed performance of Matilda The Musical in 2014, the Royal Shakespeare Company will present the second relaxed performance of Matilda The Musical at the Cambridge Theatre on Sunday 14 June at 3pm. 

This forthcoming performance of Matilda The Musical will be the fifth relaxed performance that the Royal Shakespeare Company has staged to date across its projects, and once again The National Autistic Society and Mousetrap Theatre Projects will work closely with the RSC to offer full access to the theatre for people with autism and learning disabilities. 

This performance of Matilda The Musical builds on the programme of ‘relaxed’ performances that the RSC has been running in Stratford-upon-Avon since 2013, when it was amongst the first to adopt and promote the concept. The performance provides a relaxed environment, with elements of the production adapted to reduce anxiety or stress. Lighting and sound levels are adjusted to soften their impact and there is a relaxed attitude to noise and moving around the auditorium during the performance.  Designated ‘chill-out’ areas are provided outside the auditorium with soft seating and activities for people to use if being in the auditorium becomes overwhelming for them. 

The Royal Shakespeare Company is offering tickets for this performance at the reduced rate of £25 and £10 which can be booked through the RSC ticket hotline or in person at the box office.
