What is Capital Theatres Relaxed Pantomime?

Join Grant Stott in a look behind the scenes of the 2023 relaxed performance of The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan.

Watch below to see what goes into making such a special day possible.

Relaxed & Inclusive

Capital Theatres staged Scotland’s first ever relaxed performance with The Snowman at the Festival Theatre in December 2012. Since then, the programme has gone from strength to strength, with a range of relaxed and inclusive performances for people who’d prefer a different theatre-going experience, plus their friends and families.

At a relaxed performance, you can expect adjustments to the show itself, such as reduced sound levels and lighting in the auditorium throughout the performance. Want to make some noise or move about during the show? No problem! We have extra staff on hand to take care of our audience and a quiet area for people who want to take time out.

Our support from Cash for Kids brings the magic of panto every year to children who are not able to visit the Festival Theatre.

Find out about forthcoming relaxed and inclusive performances by visiting “What’s on” and selecting the “Relaxed performances” filter.
