“Every child should go to the theatre because it is so magical. It opens up the imagination and teaches you how to handle problems.”
Dr Vicki Ooi, Artistic Director, AFTEC

What is Relaxed Theatre?
Ordinary theatre experience may not fulfil the needs of all members of audience. Unfamiliar environments, worries about others’ reaction and the experience of sitting in a dark theatre can also lead to an uncomfortable feeling for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders or learning difficulties. Such factors discourage them and their minders from appreciating a performance in the theatre.

Relaxed Theatres Rules
The usual theatre rules and norms are set aside. Audience members are free to make noise, move around, leave and re-enter the auditorium anytime.

Laid Back Environment
Sound and lighting effects are reduced to less stimulating levels. Attendance is capped at 70% capacity of the auditorium to create more space. A chill-out area is offered outside the auditorium for audience members who need some down-time.

Specially Adapted Play
The play is specially adapted so that the storytelling is more direct. Interactive activities are specially designed according to the needs of the audience.

Pre-show Info Pack
A pre-show info pack is sent to the audience including the story, characters’ information and photos of the venue. This enables the audience to familiarise themselves with the upcoming theatre experience in advance.

Venue Support
Briefing is provided for venue staff, actors and administration teams on the needs of ASD individuals.

Since 2014
66 schools and centres participated with 45% of them joining more than once.
90% thought that the performance was an effective tool for learning and development.*
“The simple plot of Relaxed Theatre was suitable for our students. Through direct contacts and photo taking with the actors, our students could have a deeper understanding on dramatic arts.”*
“Simple body movements were deliberately added into the songs so that students with lower ability could also follow the movements and enjoy singing.”*
*Teachers’ and families’ comments in 2018
