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 who is eligible to apply for a Companion Card, visit http://www.vic.companioncard.org.au/ for Victoria and http://www.nds.org.au/ for NSW.

Both cards are accepted at our venue.

Audio Descriptions

Since 2004 we’ve partnered with Vision Australia providing live audio descriptions for blind and visually impaired theatre lovers. It doesn’t matter where you sit in the theatre, you’ll receive the description via a small radio receiver and earpiece. To access this service call us, or Vision Australia on (02) 6023 6611.

Hearing Loop

Thanks to the Building Multicultural Communities Program in 2014 we will offer a hearing loop service for our patrons with hearing loss.

Parking

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