Access to the Dorfman Theatre

Access to the Dorfman Theatre

The Dorfman Theatre (formerly the Cottesloe Theatre) is on the east side of the National Theatre, on Stage Door Avenue, opposite the IBM building.

It has been redeveloped, with enlarged foyer spaces and a new lift has been added to make the Dorfman accessible from all levels. In the pit, the new flexible seating system can be raised and lowered in minutes to either a steep or shallow rake format;  or the seats can be folded away completely to become a flat floor.

The foyer, which is open daily, also gives public access to the Sherling High-Level Walkway, overlooking the theatre’s backstage workshops, and the Clore Learning Centre.

There is a bar in the Dorfman foyer, and a cloakroom is also available.
