In a partnership with Inside Out Theatre's Good Host Program Storybook is pleased to offer RELAXED PERFORMANCES for all the shows presented as part of our regular season as well as ASL INTERPRETED PERFORMANCES on select dates.
WHAT IS A RELAXED PERFORMANCE?
Relaxed performances are designed to welcome audience members who would benefit from a more relaxed environment, including those with sensory concerns, autism spectrum disorders, learning disorders, dementia; parents with small babies; or anyone for whom the regular theatre experience can be challenging.
Small modifications are made to the production and the patron experience to help reduce anxiety. The modifications vary depending on the production, and may include: reducing the volume of loud noises and effects, reducing or eliminating strobe effects, and keeping the lights in the audience slightly brighter in case a patron needs to leave the theatre.
Most importantly, everyone is welcome to do whatever they have to do to be able to enjoy the play. Whether you may need to make some noise, move around a bit, leave the theatre and take a break in the chill room, you're welcome in our theatre.
WHAT IS AN ASL INTERPRETED PERFORMANCE?
StoryBook Theatre is proud to offer an ASL translated performance for select shows in our season.
There will be NO changes to the production on stage. The interpreters will stand on the seating level to audience left side of the stage and will be lit accordingly throughout the performance so that our patrons who require this support can see them.
Our interpreters are working very hard to give the most accurate interpretation of the language on stage, so we ask that patrons please refrain from speaking to them during the performance or at intermission.
HOW DO I GET TICKETS?
Seating for those who would benefit most from Relaxed Performances or ASL Interpreted Performances are held to guarantee seating. Although all seats are available for this performance, preferred seating is offered and and may only be booked by phone.
Please call the Box Office at 403-216-0808 ext 1
