BABES IN ARMS & MINORS POLICY
Williamstown Musical Theatre Company is committed to providing an environment where all audience members, including babes in arms and young children, can be accommodated in a way which ensures every person in the theatre can have an enjoyable experience free of distraction or interruption from other audience members.
For the majority of WMTC productions, children who have not yet turned two years old (24 months) may be admitted into an event at no cost and without a ticket. In these cases, children will not be allocated a seat and must be seated on the lap of a parent or guardian for the duration of the event.
Young children who are not babes in arms and/or are over 2 years old (24 months) are required to have their own seat and have a paid ticket (Child price).
If taking your infant into the venue, please be aware of the following concerns:
- Our venue is a licensed venue, alcohol will be served.
- No crèche facilities are available and all babies/children/minors must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
- Lack of light during a performance can be particularly hazardous when bringing a child with you.
- Production elements such as loud music, bright lights, pyrotechnic stage effects and show content can cause distress to infants/minors.
As the safety of children, parents and all patrons is of paramount importance to us, these concerns are brought to your attention for your consideration, so that you, your family and all other patrons can enjoy the show in a safe and comfortable environment.
