Seaford Musical Theatre held a relaxed performance of their sell-out pantomime Aladdin for local additional needs groups and their friends and families on Sunday.
Such performances are specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders, or a learning disability.
There is a relaxed attitude to the production’s noise and movement and some small changes made to the light and sound effects, if necessary. Carers enjoyed free admission to this special event.
As the show-run genie, Kate Horsecraft, was unavailable for the performance at The Barn Theatre, understudy Cherry Newby delivered a sparkling performance, after being freed from the lamp, alongside Tanieth Kerr as the Spirit of the Ring (pictured).

Previously known as Seaford Operatic Society (launched in 1927), Seaford Musical Theatre was formed in 2006. It puts on three popular shows a year – a pantomime in January, a musical in June and a variety show in September.
