Wheelchair & Mobility

Some of our audience members use wheelchairs, mobility aids or bring their guide-dog. Some are visually or hearing impaired and use their Companion Card. They’ve been patrons for years. Just advise us what your specific needs are, and we can usually accommodate.

Companion Card

HotHouse Theatre is affiliated with the Companion Card Program. The Companion Card allows people with a severe or profound disability, who require attendant care at events and venues, to participate without having to pay for a second ticket for their attendant. Companion Card holders should call our office when booking their tickets to discuss any access requirements.

For more information about the Companion Card Program and to see who is eligible to apply for a Companion Card, visit www.vic.companioncard.org.au for Victoria and www.nds.org.au for NSW.

Both cards are accepted at our venue.

Audio Descriptions

Audio description (AD) offers people who are blind or have low vision an understanding of what is happening visually within a theatre, television, film, DVD, museum, exhibition or other arts related productions.

It is an additional narration that succinctly paints an image of transitions, movements, gestures, props, settings, costumes and scenery woven between the dialogues. For more information on how it works click here.

HotHouse Theatre and Vision Australia partner to provide audio description for the following performances in 2020.

All matinee performances on Saturday afternoons are audio described.

Hearing Loop

We offer a hearing loop service for our patrons with some hearing loss or who may be hard of hearing. Check in when you pick up your tickets for your next performance.

Parking

The island is an easy five minute drive from the centre of Albury or Wodonga, with plenty of free, well lit parking.
