Seating Plan



Children at the Theatre



There are many factors to take into account when bringing children to a West Australian Ballet production. Firstly, you know the temperament of your child better than we do. If you believe your child can sit patiently and quietly through the production (often between 1.5 and 2 hours) then they are welcome.


WAB currently has a Babes in Arms policy at both His Majesty’s Theatre and The Quarry Amphitheatre whereby children under the age of 2 years can be admitted to the auditorium without a ticket as long as they are able to stay upon a parent or guardian’s lap. Young children are not recommended at West Australian Ballet’s Genesis season.


Please note, on all occasions, it is up to the theatre’s discretion to not allow admittance to the performance or ask you to leave if your child is disturbing other patrons, or excessive noise compromises the safety of our dancers concentrating on stage. On many occasions, we may be able to re-seat you should your position in the auditorium prove problematic.


While we encourage fans of all ages to come to performances and experience the magic of ballet, we endeavour to be considerate to all audience members and ask you do the same.


For recommendations on specific shows, please see our FAQ page.


If you have any further queries on bringing children to the ballet, please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@waballet.com.au or (08) 9214 0707

Quarry Amphitheatre


1 Waldron Drive, City Beach


Sitting atop Reabold Hill in City Beach, this open air venue is surrounded by limestone walls and bushland.
Home of West Australian Ballet’s season under the stars, Ballet at the Quarry, bring a picnic to enjoy (or purchase from the cafe) as the sun sets before the show.


Important things to know:


  • This venue is now a completely smoke free venue, which includes all car parks and surrounding areas.
  • There is limited parking at the venue, subject to availability. Overflow parking will be directed by the parking officer, but will likely involve an uphill walk to the theatre.
  • For West Australian Ballet performances, the back half of the venue is chaired, with the front as a grassed area. Some exceptions apply such as Opening Night when the entire venue is chaired.
  • Low rise beach chairs are allowed on the grass area, as long as they are less than 52cm wide. West Australian Ballet has a small range of low chairs that may be borrowed, but these are available on a first come, first served basis.
  • As an outdoor venue, the Quarry Amphitheatre is subject to the elements. Mosquito repellant is recommended.
  • In the event of rain, a decision as to whether the show will continue is often not made until late. Please call the venue if you are unsure. All tickets for a show cancelled due to rain will be valid for a replacement performance.
  • Food and drink are permitted before and throughout the performance, and can be purchased at the venue.
  • Unique to the Quarry, audiences can watch the dancers warm up on stage from 7pm.
