Kiss Me, Kate – Dementia Friendly Performance

Thursday, 3 January 2019
02:15 PM – 05:15 PM
for participants
for carers

From the Golden Age, a riotous, romantic musical comedy to make your heart soar.

It’s opening night for feuding divorcees Fred and Lilli as they star in The Taming of the Shrew. But as the curtain rises, gambling, gangsters and mistaken identity conspire to create chaos.

Paul Foster (Annie Get Your Gun) directs this lavish and sensational celebration of theatre featuring some of Cole Porter’s finest songs: So In Love, Brush Up Your Shakespeare and Too Darn Hot.

Music and Lyrics by Cole Porter
Book by Sam and Bella Spewack

What to expect from a Dementia Friendly performance
Our Dementia Friendly performances are highlighted with the code DF when you are looking in the brochure or online.
We want to ensure that the experience of vising Sheffield Theatres is truly enjoyable and supportive. For a Dementia Friendly performance, we consult with people living with Dementia and the people who support them, to create the best possible environment to enjoy the show.
The show itself is adapted (where necessary) in terms of lighting, sound and occasionally stage action. The details of a specific production can be discussed when you make your booking. We offer flexibility when booking seats to allow a little more space if needed and all of our Box Office team are trained Dementia Friends.
We also offer pre-show singing sessions to help prepare people for the show!
On the day, our fully trained staff team and volunteers are on hand to guide you and provide additional support if needed. In the auditorium, there is a relaxed attitude to movement and audience responses. An accessible quiet room outside the auditorium is also available for anyone who wants to take some time away from the show.
For more information, please contact the Box Office on 0114 249 6000.
