We aim to ensure  that all visitors to Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre feel welcome. Below are some of the way we aim to make your experience accessible. If you have any specific access requests or any questions about your visit, please contact our Box Office team on 01382 223530 or

Visiting us

Wheelchair access

Full wheelchair access is provided throughout the foyer, bar restaurant and auditorium. Our accessible door at the entrance to the theatre is 96cm wide. It is operated with a push button which is 95cm from the ground. We have accessible seating inside the auditorium (seat D15-19 and D33-37 on the seating plan). These seats fold down (and can therefore be used by those who find steps difficult) or folded up to allow space for a wheelchair. Please let us know when making your booking if you require accessible seating. A wheelchair can be provided for the duration of your visit. There is no need to book this in advance.


On the ground floor there are male toilets with one cubicle and two urinals, and female toilets with three cubicles. There is a unisex accessible toilet which has a wide door. Grab rail, raised toilet seat, easy turn taps, emergency alarmed pull-cord. On the first floor there are seven unisex toilets. There is a large unisex accessible toilet which has a wide door, grab rail, height adjustable sink with easy turn taps, emergency alarmed pull-cord, and an adult-size changing bed with hoist and privacy screen.

Auditorium seating

Most of the seating in the auditorium is reached by stairs. There is a hand rail between rows D and G, and elsewhere there are handhold grips at the end of each row. The auditorium is entered at row D. There are 28 steps up to row P which is the back row of the auditorium. There are 3 steps down to row A. There is no lift access in the auditorium. Seats in the auditorium are approximately 40cm wide.  

Keep Safe place

We are a registered Keep Safe venue, which means we are trained to support and help vulnerable people if they feel at risk while they are out in the community and need support. For more information visit 

Companion tickets

There are many reasons why somebody may feel they need support to see a performance at Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre. If you are unable to attend a performance alone and require a companion we can usually offer your companion a free ticket. For more information please contact our box office on 01382 223530 or

Text and email services

Our box office email ( can be used for enquiries and booking for anyone who prefers text replies.  We also have a mobile text service which is monitored by our box office. This is available on 07888 866360.


Captioned performances

Captions are similar to television subtitling and give deaf, deafened and hard of-hearing people access to live performances. A captioner carefully prepares and cues text that appears in real time on tablets that audience members can collect from the box office when they arrive for the performance.  

British sign language 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 of the performance. The interpreter usually stands to one side of the stage but sometimes interpreters are involved in the staging of the performance.

Audio described performances

Audio Described performances support people who are blind or partially sighted to access live performances, providing verbal descriptions during the performance via a headset. This headset can be collected from the box office when you arrive at the theatre.

Touch tours

Touch tours usually take place before audio described performances and provide an opportunity for blind and partially sighted people to explore the set, props, and costumes before the show. If you are interested in a touch tour please contact our box office team. 

Relaxed performances

Relaxed performances are especially suited for people who may feel anxious about coming to the theatre. This could include, but is not limited to, people on the autistic spectrum, people with dementia or parents with babes in arms. At a Relaxed performance, you are free to move in and out of your seat as much as you need to, and our Café Bar is available as a breakout space during the performance. We use the “Inform, Don’t Adapt,” approach meaning our Relaxed performances are not sensory adapted. A visual guide and effects timeline is available for most of our productions. This allows you or those you care for to make informed decisions to ensure you can enjoy the show in a way that suits your needs.
