AUSLAN INTERPRETED EVENTS

Auslan interpreted events and performances are designed for patrons who use Australian Sign Language (Auslan). Experienced Auslan theatre interpreters stand at the side of the stage and translate the dialogue into Auslan live. Audiences requiring this service are positioned in the section closest to the interpreter to ensure good sightlines. Please let staff know if you are using the Auslan service, so they can ensure you are in the best position to see the interpreter.
