Please note that all performances will be captioned. If you would like to be closer to the captioning screen (located at the front of the stage) please let us know in the accessibility requirements section when purchasing your tickets so a seat can be reserved for you.

Our Friday performance will be AUSLAN interpreted. If you would like to be closer to the interpreters, please let us know in the accessibility requirements section when purchasing your tickets so that a seat can be reserved for you.

Relaxed Performance
Our Saturday Matinee performance is a Relaxed Performance. This will mean that the house lights stay on at a low level and sudden flashes and sound effects will be omitted from the performance. A 'Relaxed Pack' (information pack) will be released on UMMTA's social media very soon detailing the contents of the performance, content warnings, and a guide to loud noises/sensory surprises that may occur.
