For patrons with hearing impairments

Hearing enhancement & headsets
Hearing enhancement systems are available in all theatres. Two types of hearing enhancement are available: Infrared (Wharf 2 and Drama Theatre) or Induction loop (Wharf 1, Sydney Theatre and Drama Theatre). The Infrared system caters for those without hearing aids by using a headset available from the theatre’s front of house. The Induction loop system caters for people who don’t use hearing aids (through a headset); for those with newer hearing aids or hearing aids with T switches. As some seats may be ‘out of range’ we ask that you let us know your needs when making your booking.

Captioned Performances
In 2009, we will be offering the following captioned performances:
When The Rain Stops Falling, Wednesday 27 May at 1pm & Friday 29 May at 8pm;
Poor Boy, Wednesday 29 July at 1pm & 31 July at 8pm;
A Streetcar Named Desire, Wednesday 30 September at 1pm & Friday 2 October at 8pm.

Captioning allows those with hearing limitations to follow the on-stage dialogue in real-time. Sydney Theatre Company uses plasma screens for this purpose.

Auslan interpreted Performances
A sign language interpreted performance will be offered for the following performances in 2009:
Poor Boy, Friday 24 July at 8pm;
A Streetcar Named Desire, Thursday 8 October at 8pm.
Auslan will be used, and a block of seats is reserved for deaf and hearing impaired people to ensure a good view of the signer and the stage. If you wish to be seated in this area for these productions, we ask that you let us know at the time of your booking.
