Following the sold-out success of the previous relaxed performances of Matilda The Musical, the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) will present its fourth at the Cambridge Theatre, Earlham Street, London, on Sunday, June 11.
Building on the programme of relaxed performances that it has been running in Stratford-upon-Avon since 2013, the RSC is proud to have been among the first to adopt and promote the concept.
This will be the eighth relaxed performance that the Royal Shakespeare Company has staged to date, and the National Autistic Society and Mousetrap Theatre Projects will again work closely with the RSC, offering full access to the theatre for people with autism and learning disabilities and their families.
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 different approach 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 they want to take a break from being in the auditorium.
The Royal Shakespeare Company is offering tickets at the reduced rate of £25 and £10 which can be booked through the RSC Ticket Hotline or in person at the Cambridge Theatre 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 www.matildathemusical.com.
Bookings can be made via the RSC Ticket Hotline 01789 403 493
