Sheffield Autistic Society has received the message below from Katy Galloway, producer of ‘Number, Please’ an accessible theatre production to be held at the Local Theatre, 24-26 Snig Hill, Sheffield, S3 8NB from 10th to 13th July. Tickets are at reasonable prices:
I’m getting in touch as I am the producer of a theatre company from Edinburgh who are touring to Sheffield next week (10-13th July) and we are performing a relaxed performance of our show next week. We would love to invite any of your members to come and see our show.
Number, Please is a farcical spy comedy about a woman in the 1950s who accidentally gets involved in a nuclear spy plot. It’s a very silly story and we performed it last year at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to 5 star reviews and sold out shows hence why we are touring the UK and then returning to the Fringe Festival.
We are passionate about making theatre accessible to everyone and let year when we performed at the Fringe we performed two relaxed shows which we will be repeating this year. The Local Theatre is also passionate about this and we are excited to be working with them in making theatre accessible. Our relaxed performances are designed for those who may feel uncomfortable in a traditional theatre environment and feature small changes to make everyone more comfortable. Comprehensive content warnings are available for those who may need them, sudden lights and sound changes are faded and the audience is welcome to move, exit and re enter and make any noise.
We would love to invite anyone from your society to any of our performances. More information about the show is available here (https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/number-please-tickets-57206570392#tickets) and if you have any questions, please let me know!
