Can I take photos and videos during the performance?
As a general rule, no photography or recording of any type is permitted during performances. On occasions, the presenter of the performance may allow photography etc. If you are unsure, please check signage or ask one of our friendly Ushers for further details.
Can I take food and/or drinks into the theatre?
Non-alcoholic beverages in plastic bottles and dry food are the only consumables permitted in the theatre during performances.
Hot drinks, hot food or ice-creams are not allowed in the auditorium.
Alcoholic beverages in plastic may be permitted at some performances, for your convenience beverages in glass can be decanted into a plastic cup. Alcohol cannot be purchased while the performance is on. Anyone leaving the theatre to purchase alcohol will not be permitted back into the theatre.
Will it be hot/cold in the theatre?
The temperature inside most theatre venues is, if you’ll excuse the play on words, a hot topic! Frankston Arts Centre makes every effort to ensure a comfortable internal temperature for its patrons, however maintaining a consistent temperature inside such a large auditorium is a constant challenge. Patrons should feel free to report any concerns to Front of House staff who will investigate. Light layers that will allow you to adjust your outfit accordingly are recommended.
Is there a booster seat for my young child?
There are a limited number of boosters cushions available, however these are not offered at performances where the audience is predominately young children as the limited number available would not be able to accommodate the demand. For all other performances, booster cushions are issued on a first come, first served basis - please ask one of our friendly Ushers as you enter the auditorium. Booster cushions are not permitted in the Dress Circle.
What do I do with my pram/pusher?
Due to Safety and Evacuation regulations, prams and pushers are NOT permitted in the auditorium. However, we will happily store them while you attend one of our performances. Please talk to our Front of House staff for assistance.
I use a walking frame, can I get into the seating?
You may use your mobility aid to gain access to your seat. Front of House staff will then store it for you and return it at interval and the end of the show (or throughout the performance should it be required). Visit our Accessibility Information page for more details.
I use a wheelchair, where can I sit?
There are a number of wheelchair spaces available in Row J and, in most cases, you can be seated alongside your friends. Please advise the Box Office of your requirements at time of purchase. Visit our Accessibility Information page for more details.
