The Street Theatre is committed to ensuring our theatre and performances are welcoming and accessible for everyone.

WHEELCHAIR ACCESS & MOBILITY ASSISTANCE
Wheelchair bookings can be made for performances in any of the venues within The Street Theatre. We have two designated
wheelchair positions and floor level seating in Street One. Any patron in a wheelchair or with mobility concerns can be easily
accommodated into any of our Street Two and Street Three seating layouts.

We are happy for patrons to either transfer from their wheelchair to a seat, or to clear a space so that the patron may stay in
their chair. We are also happy to reserve a space next to this position for any companions or friends attending the performance.

As we need to pass the required information on to our Front of House team it is best that bookings be made in advance.To make a booking please contact the Box Office on 6247 1223.

COMPANION CARD
The ACT Companion Card program is an ACT Government initiative administered by Community Services Directorate (CSD),
under a licence agreement with the Victorian Government. The Street Theatre is an affiliate of the Companion Card program and admits carers to shows as ticketed complimentary guests..

These can only be booked in person or by phoning the box office.  Please ensure you present your companion card when you collect your tickets.

Phonic ear-sets are available for any performance in Street One - the largest of our spaces.  We recommend anyone who requires this device to email us on ushers@thestreet.org.au with performance day and time so we can provide you with optimal seating. Or where applicalbe call us on 6247 1223.

HIGHLY VISUAL PERFORMANCE
Some shows are highly visual, with little or no spoken word, and therefore suitable for students who are Deaf, hard of hearing or speak a language other than English. Where available, we will indicate the degree of visual elements in the show. Please note that there is often sound composition throughout live performances.
