At Toitoi, we’re proud to be an inclusive and diverse venue. We have allocated accessible seats for each show, however these vary for different performances. We recommend accessible seats are booked at the Box Office so we can make sure we’re meeting all your needs ahead of time.
We are committed to improving our understanding of accessibility needs. If you see or think of something we could be doing better to ensure you have the best possible time at Toitoi, please let one of our team know, or get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
We have two wheelchairs in the venue for patrons to use. When you get here please let one of our front of house team know you’ve arrived so we can ensure you have everything you need.

Getting into Toitoi
Toitoi has two street entrances, on Hastings Street. The Cushing Foyer entrance is level, while the Opera House entrance has a ramp or stairs.
Once inside Toitoi, the Opera House, Cushing Foyer and Functions on Hastings are all level entry.
To access the Opera House performance spaces, there are stairs or a lift to the Dress Circle, and stairs to the Grand Circle.
Our wheelchair seats are accessed via a corridor on the ground floor, which is signposted. If you’re not sure where to go, please ask one of our friendly Toitoi crew.
The Opera House is fitted with an audio loop in certain areas, which amplifies the sound of the performance for hearing aids. The sound quality can vary, however, so we advise those who require this loop to ring our Box Office on 06 871 5289 for advice on the best seats for any particular show.
Wheelchair toilet facilities are located on the ground floor, accessed via Cushing Foyer. We have two unisex toilets at Toitoi – one on the ground floor (accessed via Cushing Foyer) and the other in the Dress Circle Foyer, which can also be accessed via the lift.
