The Arts Club Theatre Company is proud to present a relaxed performance for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

An inclusive experience designed to welcome patrons of all ages and sensitivities, a relaxed performance contains modifications to the conventions of traditional theatre to maximize the comfort of attendees. Sound and lighting cues are adjusted to be more subdued, and the audience is welcome to move around and make noise. The relaxed performance for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will be on September 30, with tickets offered at a discounted rate.

Differences that you may notice

  • House lights will remain on at a dimmed level
  • Music and sound levels will be lowered
  • Lights and projections will be more subdued
  • The audience is welcome to move around and make noise
  • Designated standing areas will be available inside the theatre
  • Use of communication boards and other technology, such as cell phones and tablets, are welcome (however, we ask that you not take photos)
  • A Relaxation Station in the lobby will be equipped with a live feed of the show for those who need to take a break from the theatre, but don’t want to miss what’s happening on stage
  • Patrons are asked to avoid wearing perfume, cologne, or other scented products

How to book

Preparing for a relaxed performance
