HMS Pinafore Relaxed Performance

Enjoy a performance of HMS Pinafore in a relaxed environment.

A clueless Captain, a spirited siren and pompous petty officers. No wonder they’re all at sea.

The relaxed performance of HMS Pinafore will take place on 3 December 2021 at 13.30. This performance is ideal for anyone who benefits from a more relaxed environment, from being able to make noise, leave and enter the auditorium as you please, or access toilets or chill-out areas during the performance. This would include anyone with dementia, an autism spectrum condition, sensory and communication disorders or learning disability.

About HMS Pinafore

HMS Pinafore is one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most beloved operas. A classic tale of forbidden love, and the troubles that must be overcome before our hero and heroine can be together.

When Josephine, the daughter of Captain Corcoran, falls for the lowly sailor Ralph Rackstraw, she’s torn between her heart’s true love, and her desire to honour her father’s wish for her to marry Sir Joseph Porter, the First Lord of the Admiralty.

What you can expect from this Relaxed Performance?

  • The lights in the audience will be slightly dimmed so that it’s not too dark
  • You can make noise during the show
  • You can go in and out of the auditorium as you please
  • If you need a break there are chill out areas
  • We make small changes to the lights and sound (such as removing loud or sudden sound effects and taking out strobes lights)
