Accessibility

Welcome

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company offers a variety of resources and accommodations to bring Shakespeare and the Classics to all. Accommodations are available to all and include gender neutral restrooms, wheelchair-accessible seating, Sign Language Interpreted and Audio Described Performances, and more.

Wheelchair Accessbile Seating

We have wheelchair accessible seats, along with companion seats, available in the Lower Gallery and Upper Gallery. These can be booked online or by calling the Box Office.

Sensory Friendly Performances

These special performances are uniquely adapted for individuals with autism and/or those with developmental and/or sensory differences to enjoy with their families.  The performances are modified and front-of-house staff and volunteers are trained to facilitate a safe, judgement-free environment.  Click here for the 2023 Sensory Friendly Performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Gender Neutral Restrooms

All-gender restrooms are located on the second floor. These restrooms are individual stalls with locks and a shared sink.

Sign Language Interpreted Performances

For Patron who are deaf or hard of hearing, Sign Language interpreted performances are provided for each production by live interpreters from the stage. Book online or contact the Box Office.

Audio-Described Performances

For Patrons who are blind or have low vision, we offer an audio-described performance per production. This service is provided by a live person who will be describing the non-spoken action of the performance. Patrons utilizing this resource can pick up a headset from the Box Office on the scheduled night.

Assisted Listening Devices

We offer assisted listening devices at all performances.  These are complimentary and can be picked up from the Box Office upon arrival. These amplify the sound heard from the stage and can pair with your hearing aids or can be used with your earphones.

Ramps and Elevators

A wheelchair-accessible ramp is located in the Linnemann Family Lobby of the first floor, leading up to the left-hand doors of the theatre. The Upper Gallery center section is all on the same level and can be access via elevator in the lobby.
