- Production elements such as loud music, bright lights, pyrotechnic stage effects and show content can cause distress to infants.
- The potential for disturbance to other patrons by crying or restless infants.

Parents choosing to visit the theatre with children less than two years of age are asked to liaise with the theatre's front-of-house staff on arrival at the theatre.
Please be considerate of other patrons in the theatre. If your infant is causing a disturbance, we ask that you temporarily remove the infant from the auditorium.
