Max Bell Theatre
PLEASE NOTE: This is a Relaxed Performance.
This Tony Award-winning musical is an inspiring and moving tale about the importance of following your heart. Set in working-class England, young Billy dreams of trading in his boxing gloves for ballet slippers, but his widowed father cannot understand his passion. A celebration of Calgary’s local talent, this rendition of Billy Elliot The Musical will be choreographed by former Alberta Ballet principal dancer Yukichi Hattori, helmed by Artistic Director Stafford Arima, and will feature the best and brightest of Calgary’s dance community.
ABOUT RELAXED PERFORMANCES
Relaxed performances are designed to welcome audience members who would benefit
from a more relaxed environment, including those with sensory concerns, autism
spectrum disorders, learning disorders, dementia, parents with young children, or anyone
for whom the regular theatre experience can be challenging.
Small modifications are made to the production and the patron experience to help
reduce anxiety. The modifications vary depending on the production, and may include:
reducing the volume of loud noises and effects, eliminating strobe effects, and keeping
the lights in the audience slightly brighter in case a patron needs to leave the theatre.
Most importantly, everyone is welcome to do whatever they have to do to be able to
enjoy the play. Whether you may need to make some noise, move around a bit, leave
the theatre and take a break in the chill room, you're welcome in our theatre.
We are proud to partner with Inside Out Theatre and The Good Host Program to offer Relaxed and ASL performances on selected days throughout our 2018-19 season!
