Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Darlington Hippodrome are organising a relaxed performance of the Pantomime Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs -  in the newly named, refurbished and restored theatre, Darlington Hippodrome.

A relaxed performance is a specially adapted performance, designed to welcome adults and young people to the venue with an Autistic Spectrum Condition, learning disability or anyone who might find a typical theatre setting a challenge.

Audience members can leave the auditorium at any time and come back in again, the lights in the auditorium will stay on, and sound levels will be specially adapted to make sure there are no startling noises or loud bangs. There will be a “chill-out zone” in our brand new education space outside the auditorium, and audience members can talk as much as they like.

The performance will take place on Thursday 11th January 2018 at 12noon. Tickets are £10 and FREE essential companion tickets can be arranged. Please visit this link for booking information.
