Sensory Friendly

RELAXED

Designed for patrons with disability and their families, or anyone who may benefit from a more relaxed environment. Relaxed performances usually have slight modifications to sound and lighting, downloadable pre-visit social stories, support aids and an open-door policy with dedicated quiet area.

Laser Beak Man
Artist Tim Sharp’s cult-classic comes to life with eye-popping staging and offbeat humour.
Sydney Opera House
12 January, 2pm.

Two performers from the cast will brief the audience before the show starts on all the changes made for the relaxed performance and to introduce the puppets.

  • Doors will open earlier so audiences can settle before the performance
  • Smoke/haze and strobes will be removed
  • Sounds levels will be reduced: overall sound levels will be lower and louder moments reduced
  • House lights will be up so audiences can easily come & go if need be
  • There will be a ‘chill out’ area in the foyer with beanbags and fidget toys

We encourage audiences to bring sunglasses along as the LED panels can be bright.
