We aim to ensure that all visitors to Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre feel welcome. Below are some of the ways we make our building accessible to everyone.
If you have any specific access requirements or questions about your visit, call Box Office on 01382 223530 or email [email protected]
FULL WHEELCHAIR ACCESS
is provided throughout the Foyer, Bar, and Restaurant areas. If you need wheelchair-accessible seating in the auditorium or find steps difficult to use, let us know when you are booking as accessible spaces are limited. A courtesy wheelchair can be booked in advance.
LARGE PRINT, AUDIO & BRAILLE
Large print, Audio, and Braille season brochures are available on request. Please contact Box Office if you require one.
Our Box Office can use email for enquiries and bookings for patrons with hearing and speech difficulties. Please contact [email protected]
COMPANION TICKET SCHEME
There are many reasons why somebody may feel they need support to see a performance at the Rep. Should this be the case for you or somebody you support, you are entitled to a free companion ticket when purchasing a ticket.
Relaxed performances are adapted for audience members who want a more relaxed environment. This could include people on the autistic spectrum or people with dementia. Loud noises and strobe lighting are omitted, house lights are not fully dimmed and people are more free to move about.
AUDIO DESCRIBED PERFORMANCES
Audio Described performances support people who are blind or partially sighted to access live performance, providing verbal descriptions during the performance via a headset (collected on arrival).
Touch tours usually take place before the audio described performance and provide an opportunity for blind and partially sighted patrons to explore the set, props, and costumes before the show.
BSL INTERPRETED PERFORMANCES
BSL interpreted performances allow people who are deaf or for whom British Sign Language is their first or preferred language access to live performance. BSL interpreters provide a linguistic and artistic interpretation. The interpreter usually stands to one side of the stage but sometimes interpreters are involved in the staging or the performance.
Captioning is similar to television subtitling and gives deaf deafened and hard-of-hearing people access to live performances. A captioner carefully prepares and cues text that appears in real-time on units placed to the side of the stage, centrally, or within the set.
Where stated, we offer concessions to over 60s, people with disabilities, unemployed, students, under 18s, and members of entertainment unions. Concessions are subject to availability and proof of entitlement must be shown when purchasing tickets.
