Sign Language Interpreted Performances

For Patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing, Sign Language interpreted performances are offered during the run of each production by live interpreters from the stage. These are typically scheduled for the final matinee performance. Check the show's performance schedule and book online or contact the Box Office.

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. The devices include a DSP loop driver for anyone using a T-coil-equipped hearing aid.

Audio-Described Performances

For Patrons who are blind or have low vision, we offer at least one audio-described performance per production. This service is provided by a live person who will be describing the non-spoken action of the performance. Advance reservations are appreciated. Patrons utilizing this resource can pick up a headset from the Box Office on the scheduled night. These are typically scheduled for the final matinee performance. Check the show's performance schedule and book online or contact the Box Office.

Gender Neutral Bathrooms

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

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. The 2024 performance will be on December 4, 2024 of Twelfth Night.
