Access at Dundee Rep Theatre

Wheelchair access

We provide full wheelchair access in all areas of our theatre whether you are here to enjoy a performance, work or participate in a workshop or class.
A push-button door is situated at the main entrance to allow access for wheelchair users. A ramp will bring you up to box office level and there is a lift for bringing patrons to the upper bar where the auditorium doors are situated. Both the upper bar and restaurant have toilets for disabled patrons.

Please notify Box Office when booking your seats if a member of your party is a wheelchair user.

Captioned performances

Captioning is similar to television subtitling and gives deaf, deafened or hard of hearing people access to performances.

Relaxed performances

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 free to move about. 

Infra-Red system (for enhanced hearing)

Dundee Rep Theatre offers two different types of Infra-Red systems:
1. A headset for anyone who would like the sound on stage amplified. The headsets are also used for the Audio Describer service.
2. A necklace used to amplify the sound on stage for people who use a hearing aid.
