Please continue to check the website for the latest news and updates for this performance or call the RSC Ticket Hotline for more information.
On Sunday 15th June at 3pm, the Royal Shakespeare Company will present a ‘relaxed performance’ of Matilda The Musical at the Cambridge Theatre. The National Autistic Society is working closely with the RSC on this special performance offering full access to the theatre for people with autism and learning disabilities.
This first relaxed 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 will provide a relaxed environment, with elements of the production adapted to reduce anxiety or stress. Lighting and sound levels will be adjusted to soften their impact and there will be a relaxed attitude to noise and moving around the auditorium during the performance. Designated ‘chill-out’ areas will be 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 will offer tickets for this performance at the reduced rate of £20, booked through the RSC ticket hotline or in person at the box office. All bookers will be sent a visual story to help them familiarise themselves with the plot, characters and the setting before they arrive at the theatre. Detailed event and transport information will also be available from the dedicated ‘relaxed’ performance section of www.matildathemusical.com
