Relaxed performances announced for School of Rock

5:26, 25th November 2019

Mousetrap theatre are holding relaxed performances for the School of Rock, aimed at families who have children with additional needs.

In response to a report that 1 in 5 families who have children with additional needs don’t feel comfortable attending the theatre, Mousetrap theatre have announced relaxed performances of School of Rock to take place on Monday 20th January at 6.30pm. The event will cater to families who have children with additional needs such as autism, learning difficulties or other sensory and communication needs who require a more relaxed environment.

Families will be assisted throughout the theatre process from booking tickets to help during the performance, including a dedicated relaxed performance administrator and fully trained staff and volunteers on hand at the Gillian Lynne Theatre throughout the evening. Families will also have access to pre-show family workshops and support materials including a resource pack that explains the show’s themes and characters, as well as a ‘visual story’ that helps young people to better understand the play’s narrative.

Susan Whiddington, chief executive of Mousetrap Theatre Projects says: ‘We are delighted to offer this fantastic musical to families with children with additional needs. We know how much these performances mean to families who otherwise would be unable to enjoy West End shows. We are particularly excited about taking families to School of Rock which has been the number one requested show from families’
