Parents choosing to visit with children under two are asked to purchase an aisle seat in the Stalls as the safest option and are asked to be considerate of other patrons. If your child is causing a disturbance we ask you temporarily leave the auditorium. Please liaise with the theatre’s Front of House staff on arrival at the theatre.
