What is a Relaxed Performance?


Relaxed Performance Subscriptions are now available!

A Relaxed Performance is intended for those individuals who would like to see theatre but would benefit from a more relaxed environment. Anyone can purchase tickets to attend the relaxed performance. All are welcome, including babes in arms. 

During Relaxed Performances, Theatre Orangeville raises the house lights, opens the doors and lowers the sound levels for anyone who finds the theatre environment challenging for any reason. Performance dates are listed below subscribe to 3 or 5 shows and save! 


The main goal of a relaxed performance is to "relax" the experience through small changes to the audience experience, environment and production.

The Experience
Some changes to the overall experience may include:

  • The lobby doors will be opened early to all for a more calm, casual entry and exit to the theatre 
  • Patrons who feel overwhelmed during the performance are welcome to come and go from the performance or walk about the theatre 

The Environment

  • House lighting will be raised slightly

The Performance

Some changes to the performance may include:

  • Adjustment to sound levels or demonstration and explanation of any loud noises or effects
  • Actors speaking to the audience before the performance to explain scenes or what they can expect
