Services for patrons who are blind or have low vision:
  • Service animals, such as guide dogs, are welcome.
  • Audio-described performances (see details below)

Audio Description allows those who are visually impaired to more fully enjoy a live performance through a verbal description of the stage production. The visually impaired patron wears a single earpiece connected to a personal headset receiver. A trained audio describer provides live, verbal descriptions of actions, costumes, scenery and other visual elements of the live performance, which is transmitted to the headsets so only those wearing them hear the supplemental description as well as the dialog. This service is offered free of charge to visually impaired patrons, but it must be requested in advance.

While Audio Description is planned for the performances listed below, patrons wishing to utilize the service must contact us to request the service at least two weeks in advance to ensure describer availability.
