Castlebar Musical & Dramatic Society presents a Relaxed/Sensory-Friendly Performance of ‘Legally Blonde: The Musical’.
A relaxed/sensory-friendly performance is for everyone, providing a welcoming and inclusive environment which can be enjoyed by all. The Castlebar Musical & Dramatic Society is delighted to present a show of this nature on Saturday 9th March at 2pm in The Royal Theatre Castlebar. It remains to date, the only amateur musical society in Ireland to stage a sensory-friendly show, having successfully staged a relaxed performance in 2023.
Speaking about this initiative Ronan Egan, Chairman of the Society said ‘relaxed performances provide a supportive theatre environment where audience members can express themselves as they wish, move around and exit and re-enter the auditorium freely. During this performance, there will be a laid-back approach to noise and movement, thereby encouraging everyone to relax and be completely themselves while enjoying the show’.
Referring to this specific performance of ‘Legally Blonde: The Musical’, Ronan advised that ‘the show’s lighting and sound will be adjusted to reduce sensory stimuli and the lights in the auditorium will be kept on at a lower level throughout the performance to create a comfortable, safe and welcoming environment. There will also be a ‘chill-out’ area where people can go if they find they need some quiet time away from the auditorium’.
This relaxed/sensory-friendly performance is one of a run of 4 shows of ‘Legally Blonde: The Musical’, which takes place in The Royal Theatre Castlebar from 7th to 9th March. This fabulously fun, international, award-winning musical is full of catchy tunes and hilarious moments and is ridiculously enjoyable from start to finish.
