Re­turn for re­laxed panto show

South Wales Evening Post - - COMMUNITY -

FOL­LOW­ING on from the suc­cess of last year’s in­au­gu­ral re­laxed pan­tomime per­for­mance, Swansea Grand The­atre is of­fer­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence again for this year’s panto, Cin­derella.

The re­laxed per­for­mance on Wed­nes­day, Jan­uary 9, at 7pm of­fers an op­por­tu­nity for visitors with autis­tic spec­trum dis­or­ders, or learn­ing or sen­sory needs, to enjoy top qual­ity the­atre in a friendly, re­laxed and in­for­mal en­vi­ron­ment.

These per­for­mances are also ideal for a young child’s first visit to a pan­tomime.

Cin­derella will still be packed full of the sea­sonal magic that au­di­ences have come to ex­pect of Swansea Grand The­atre’s pan­tomimes, but there will be ad­just­ments. The re­laxed per­for­mance will re­move the tra­di­tional ‘rules’ of the­atre go­ing; visitors will be free to make noise or move around and will also ben­e­fit from: ■ Ex­tra in­for­ma­tion prior to their visit ■ More time to find their seats and set­tle in ■ An in­tro­duc­tion to the cast prior to the show ■ Adapted light­ing, sound lev­els and soft­ened au­di­ence in­ter­ac­tion ■ A re­duced ticket price of £10 (usu­ally £14 – £27.50) ■ Touch tours by prior ar­range­ment ■ A ded­i­cated chill out area where they can re­lax if they need to take a break from the show

To help par­ents and car­ers re­lax prior to the per­for­mance the the­atre also offess a no-ques­tion­sasked re­fund pol­icy right up until the mo­ment the show starts as things don’t al­ways go ac­cord­ing to plan on the day.

A spokesman for the Grand said: “We want to make it easy for you to book the best seats in ad­vance with­out hav­ing to worry about changes fur­ther down the line.”

Tick­ets are not avail­able on­line. To book, please con­tact our box of­fice on 01792 475715 or email swansea.grandreser­va­[email protected]

Swansea Grand The­atre also has an au­dio de­scribed per­for­mance of Cin­derella on Jan­uary 3 at 2pm and two Bri­tish Sign Lan­guage in­ter­preted per­for­mances on Jan­uary 8 at 7pm and 2pm the next day.
