THE ALHAMBRA again present a Relaxed performance of its annual pantomime.

The Bradford theatre will offer the special performance of Aladdin and January 8 at

Billy Pearce will lead the cast as Wishee Washee, with Christopher Biggins as Widow Twankey and Blues singer Simon Webbe in the title role of Aladdin.

A spokesman said: “Audiences watching this Relaxed Performance will enjoy all the magic, sparkle and lavish production values a Qdos Entertainment pantomime offers, with modified elements to suit the sensory and access needs of patrons.

“It is catered towards people with special needs or those who may otherwise find attending the theatre challenging. We will create an environment that welcomes audiences with specific needs to experience live theatre and the magic of pantomime with their friends, families and school groups.”

The production in Bradford will be modified: house lighting is often kept on so that people can move around, volume levels are reduced so there are no loud bangs, interaction between the stage and the audience is revised, and certain language is modified.

Talking and noise is encouraged in the auditorium without judgement, often creating spaces for patrons to have some time away from the production if they wish.

Everyone booking for the Relaxed Performance will be sent a visual story in advance to help them familiarise themselves with the plot, characters and the setting before they arrive at the theatre. The Relaxed Performance will also include Sign Language Interpretation.
