Live Streamed /captioned performances

Thanks to the generosity of the ANZ Staff Foundation, BATS Theatre is partnering with artists to produce a number of Captioned Live Streamed shows this year. Those who are d/Deaf or who can’t physically make it into the theatre, can now enjoy even more live art at BATS or from home.

Currently there are three shows confirmed, with more to be added soon.

Please note - you will be emailed a link to the show 10 - 20 minutes before the show begins.

We also have a Audio Described in-person performances. Find those here.
