Accessibility & Inclusion

For information regarding accessibility at the venue, please visit the Capitol Theatre website. There you’ll find information about wheelchair and transfer seating, wheelchair bookings, companion card bookings, hearing loop, service dogs, distance from seat to stage, and more. A virtual tour of the theatre allows you to virtually walk through the auditorium before your visit.

To cater to a diverse set of needs, Beauty and the Beast is thrilled to offer the following performances on specific dates in Sydney.

Sunday 5 November 2023, 1PM

At this performance, the audience will be able to listen to live verbal commentary on the visual elements of the show.

Saturday 18 November 2023, 1.30PM

At this performance, audience members will be encouraged to be completely themselves during the show – to make sounds, move around, fidget or use noise cancelling headphones.

Based on an assessment by Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) staff, modifications will be made to the show, foyers and the entire experience, to consider and care for those who may need specific supports. There will be extra staff on hand and dedicated quiet areas.

Before the performance, a pre-show welcome will take place (introducing some of the characters, sensory-significant scenes and volume of the orchestra).

During the performance, nuanced adjustments will be made to both the lighting and sound levels to accommodate sensory sensitivities, ensuring a more comfortable and enjoyable experience for all attendees.
