Audio Described Performances

Audio Described Performances offer partially sighted and blind patrons a companion piece to the shows delivered through an earpiece and a small receiver. The Audio Described Performance will outline the events happening on stage – including relevant sets, costumes, and non verbal actions – in a delivery style that matches the tone and presentation of the play. The scripts for the Audio Described Performance are developed in conjunction with the creative teams at Theatre Passe Muraille, with the goal of giving visually impaired audience members a more immersive experience.

Relaxed Performances

Relaxed performances are designed to welcome audience members who could benefit from a more relaxed environment including those on the autistic spectrum. This set up includes: low light in the audience during the performance, a pre-show introduction to characters/sound and light cues/what the play is about before, less intense sound and lighting effects, the ability to come and go from the space, and a chill out space outside the theatre.
