On the FIRST SATURDAY 11AM show of every production , CTYP will be holding “Mask Mandatory” Accessible Performances for our immunocompromised and disabled patrons, and anyone who feels more comfortable in a mask mandated space. All audience members will be REQUIRED to wear a mask for the entire duration of the show!

Sadly, due to the constraints of our schedules and the organizations we are working with, not all performances will have all three access-specific performances. If there is a way we can make these shows more accessible for you and your child outside of these three types of access-specific performance modes and our general access standards (read below) please let us know! We would love to learn more and are open to listening to the accessibility needs of our theatregoers.

MORE ABOUT ACCESS AT CTYP

GENERAL PERFORMANCES

At all performances, Carousel is working to create an accessible environment for as many theatregoers as possible. If you have any accessibility needs, including an Access2 Pass or wheelchair/mobility device accessibility needs, please feel free to email CTYP at info@carouseltheatre.ca or call our Box Office Line at 604-685-6217 and we would be more than happy to discuss how we can meet your accessibility needs.

Carousel Theatre has a relaxed come-and-go policy. If for any reason you or your child need to leave the theatre for a moment, our Front of House Staff will work to escort you back into the theatre as soon as possible, though potentially not back to your exact spot.

RELAXED PERFORMANCES

Relaxed or Sensory-Friendly Performances are specifically crafted for people who benefit from a more relaxed theatre environment, including autistic children, and children with sensory and/or communication disorders. These performances create a welcoming, accessible, and comfortable theatre environment for everyone. The performances feature modified sound and lighting effects, flexible general admission seating, an empathetic welcoming atmosphere, and pre-show family resources.

ASL-INTERPRETED & VOCAL EYE PERFORMANCES

Carousel is currently working to ensure that we have performances that are accessible for our D/deaf & Hard of Hearing (HOH) community, and our Blind & Low Vision community. As we set dates for shows that are ASL-interpreted, or Vocal Eye Shows, we will update our community as soon as possible.

THE BEE STAGE

Specially made for our littlest theatre-goers, Bee Stage plays are crafted for babies and toddlers. These gentle, interactive shows introduce babies and toddlers to theatre through storytelling and music in an intimate, welcoming studio space. The BEE Stage is currently on pause, but will be returning soon!
