How to Make the Most of your Theater Trip as an Elderly Person
A trip to the theater can be a fantastic way to celebrate a birthday, achievement, or even just to have a lovely evening out with your partner or with friends. There are so many options available, you can pick something to fit your mood and personality exactly, and even satisfy a group of friends all with different interests; there will be something there for everyone. However, to have the perfect night out, especially as an elderly person, it’s worth planning well in advance so that you can fully enjoy your evening without worrying.
Firstly, check the venue’s accessibility. Most theaters have very good provisions, but they are often in old buildings so it’s worth checking they offer what you need. If you do have particular requirements, ringing the theatre to let them know you are coming will help them prepare with minimal fuss.
No celebration event is complete without food and drink, and the theater is no different. Lots of restaurants do great pre-theater menu deals if you show your ticket, so you can treat yourself to a proper meal and make the most of your evening. It’s worth picking a restaurant as close to the theater as possible, so you can spend more time relaxing and finishing your meal, and less time trying to get across the city in a rush.
Of course, the most important part of your night is the show itself. With so much choice available, it can feel overwhelming knowing what to pick. The great infographic below could help you with that, and narrow down some options to suit your personality and occasion.
