Relaxed Performances

Throughout our season Neptune Theatre offers Relaxed Performances, which are designed to welcome audience members who would benefit from a more flexible environment. This includes (but is not limited to) those with sensory sensitivities, anxiety, learning differences, autism spectrum disorder, seniors, and first-time theatregoers.  Minor production changes are made to reduce startling effects and there is a relaxed attitude towards audience noise and movement, and our in-house rules. We invite all patrons to come, be themselves and experience live theatre!

Access 2 Program

The Access 2 card is for people of all ages and types of permanent disabilities who require the assistance of a support person at hundreds of participating entertainment, cultural and recreational venues across Canada. A support person is an adult who accompanies a person with a permanent disability to assist with services that are not provided by the employees at the participating venue, such as assistance with eating, administering medication, communication and use of the facilities. To learn more visit https://access2card.ca/future-card-holders/

Access 2 card holders are able to book a Neptune Theatre performance ticket and add an accompanying companion ticket for their support person. This companion ticket is free of charge.

Neptune Theatre is located on sacred land that has been the site of human activity since time immemorial. We are in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq, and we acknowledge them as the past, present, and future caretakers of this land.

As artists, we are grateful to work and build community here. As stewards of culture, we are in the process of learning more about how our company can improve our relations with Indigenous People and uphold the values of collaboration and inclusivity in all that we do.
