The Dramatic Theatre of the City of Warsaw is one of Poland’s foremost theatres. Outstanding artists, such as Jan Świderski, Gustaw Holoubek and Zbigniew Zapasiewicz have served as its directors over the years. It boasts three stages in two of Warsaw’s neighbourhoods: Śródmieście and Mokotów.
The theatre is constantly working to improve accessibility for people with disabilities.
The Small Stage and the Gustaw Holoubek Stage in the Palace of Culture and Science are accessible to people with physical disabilities via a lift located at the main entrance. Although it is possible to access the Small Stage by lift, due to safety reasons, it is not yet accessible to people in wheelchairs, but will be upon completion of phase two of our accessibility investment. The Small Stage is fitted with an audio induction loop around the entire stage and audience area. The theatre Cafe is also accessible to people with physical disabilities as are the restrooms.
On the Gustaw Holoubek Stage, it is possible to dismantle the back row seats in the orchestra section to create space for several wheelchairs. Please notify us of this request at the time of ticket purchase.
The Przodownik Stage is not accessible to people with physical disabilities due to architectural barriers, but we will make every effort to ensure your visit is possible. If you have a physical disability and are interested in seeing a show at this venue, please call our Customer Service representatives at least one day prior to your visit.
