On Wed 4 Jan, Norwich Theatre will host a relaxed performance of its pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk. The performance will feature a Chill Out Area sponsored by Orchard Toys 

The Chill Out Area offers a quiet place with comfortable places to sit and relax for anyone who might need a break. Orchard Toys will be providing a whole range of toys for everyone to play with before, during or after the relaxed performance.

Chloe Chambers, Marketing Executive at Orchard ToysWe are so pleased to be sponsoring the relaxed performance of Jack and The Beanstalk. We are delighted that there is an opportunity for children to see this performance, who wouldn’t otherwise get to experience this fantastic pantomime. You can find a selection of our games and jigsaw puzzles, available to play, in the chill out area before, during and after the performance.” 

The relaxed performance is for anyone who may find it difficult to attend a standard performance of Jack and the Beanstalk. This can include people with learning disabilities, movement disorders, autistic spectrum disorder, other sensory, communication or neurological conditions, or those with young children or babies.

This special performance is more spaced out, the auditorium lighting is not switched off completely, and there will be reduced special effects. There is also no need to worry about making noise or moving around. The relaxed performance will still have all the Fee, Fi, Fo, Fun you could want.
