What Is A Relaxed Performance?
We offer performances that are more relaxed for all those who benefit from a show where loud noises are reduced, elements of surprise are kept to a minimum and moving around the auditorium is not a problem.
Relaxed performances are carefully created for people with learning disabilities and their families or carers so that everyone can enjoy the wonder of theatre at Nottingham Playhouse in an environment that is comfortable and supportive. The house lights will be partially up throughout and ‘chill-out’ areas will be available before, during and after a performance. If a familiarisation visit would be helpful, we would be very happy to accommodate this.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding familiarisation visits, wheelchair access and disabled parking, all you need to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“They say that shoulder blades are where your wings were, when you were an angel…where your wings will grow again one day.”
Moving house has been hard for 12-year-old Michael, and now his baby sister is ill in hospital, it seems his whole world has been turned upside down.
Exploring the crumbling garage of his new home one afternoon, he makes an extraordinary discovery. A strange, decrepit creature, Skellig, is hidden amongst the dust, dead insects and junk.
Together with his new friend Mina, Michael decides to help Skellig. But can the mysterious Skellig help Michael in return?
Winner of the Whitbread Children’s Book of the Year and Carnegie Medal, this modern classic has been adapted for the theatre by its author. Let your imagination take flight in this magical re-telling of David Almond’s hauntingly beautiful story.
