Seating

Accessible seating for patrons with wheelchairs is available at the back of the orchestra level of the Victoria Theatre, on all levels of the Schuster Center, and in designated areas in the Loft Theatre. There is an accessible entrance (with automatic doors) located to the south of the Victoria Theatre’s main doors. All entrances at the Schuster Center have automatic doors.

Accessible seating can be purchased by calling 1-888-228-3630 or online at www.ticketcenterstage.com. Wheelchair seats are designated by a wheel chair symbol (color may vary). All seats that are designated as accessible seats will accommodate a standard wheelchair, power-chair or scooter. Each wheelchair accessible seat will have a free standing hardback chair in its place. Within 48 hours of purchasing wheelchair seating online, you will receive a survey to request to have the chair(s) removed in advance or make other accommodations.

Sensory-Friendly Performances

Certain performances are offered as sensory-friendly. Sensory-friendly performances are specifically designed for children with an autism spectrum disorder, other sensory processing diagnoses, and other special needs. You can expect a reduction of loud jarring sounds, the absence of flashing or strobe lighting on stage, modifications of the house lights during the performance, and a judgement-free environment where all patrons can feel free to vocalize or move around the theatre as they need to. At no time will anyone be asked to leave the performance due to sound, movement or behaviors related to the differing cognitive/ developmental abilities.

Additional resources including videos, social narratives, checklists, and helpful hints sheets for all Victoria Theatre Association sensory-friendly performances are available on victoriatheatre.com.

All Victoria Theatre Association sensory-friendly performances will have American Sign Language interpretation provided. Audio description is available upon request.
