Monkey Baa is a theatre company for young people and that means every child.
At home in the fully accessible ARA Darling Quarter Theatre, we embrace a multi-disability perspective and our programming caters for patrons with physical, sensory, intellectual, psychiatric, cognitive and learning difficulties.
For further information on our programming and venue accessibility, please see below or contact us in person at our Box Office (ARA Darling Quarter Theatre, Terrace 3, 1-25 Harbour St, Sydney), email: firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 02 8624 9340 or contact us via the National Relay Service
There are several wheelchair and companion seating positions available in our theatre. To book a space, please contact our Box Office. The ARA Darling Quarter Theatre foyer is accessed by ramps from the Darling Quarter district. Inside the foyer, there is an accessible toilet (and ambulant toilets in the male and female bathrooms) and ramp access to the auditorium. Accessible parking spaces are available in Wilson Parking Darling Quarter car park (Level B2), with lift access to Darling Quarter.
Monkey Baa is a Companion Card affiliate. The Companion Card enables people with disability who require attendant care support to attend a Monkey Baa production without incurring the cost of a second ticket. Cardholders must present their card when booking or collecting the complimentary ticket. Monkey Baa cannot guarantee that performances by external companies at the ARA Darling Quarter Theatre will accept Companion Cards.

National Relay Service

We offer at least one Relaxed Performance during every school holiday season. Relaxed performances welcome children with disability, and sensory and learning challenges to the theatre. We leave the house lights on (dimmed), the auditorium doors stay open, and a chill out area is available in the foyer throughout the show. The atmosphere is non-judgemental and we embrace noisy enthusiasm.
Tickets are $24 for adults and children. For Relaxed Performance dates and times, please visit the WHAT’S ON section of our website.
If a child is sight impaired, we’d love to arrange a tactile tour of the set and costumes before the production starts. Please contact our Box Office in advance to discuss arrangements.
Our ticket prices take into account various considerations with regards to accessibility and affordability. Discounts are available to all Relaxed Performances. Monkey Baa doesn’t charge booking or transaction fees.
