Audio Described

Audio description is a live commentary for people who are blind or have low vision of the visual elements of a performance which is relayed to the patron via a free headset and receiver linked to the FM radio system.

A pre-show Tactile Tours may be available allowing hands on access to costumes, props and stage set in order to capture the atmosphere of the work. Tactile Tours usually occur before the Audio Described performance. 

Auslan Interpreted Auslan Interpreted Experienced Auslan theatre interpreters stand to the side of the stage and translate what the actors are saying or singing into Auslan. A block of seats is reserved for users of this service to ensure a good view of the interpreter and the stage.
