LOOP Hearing System
Thanks to Lawrence Otolaryngology and Sertoma, we now provide the Loop Hearing System. A receiver sends the voices of our performers from the microphone directly into a hearing aid or cochlear implant. If you use a T-Coil or Telecoil Aid, enjoy as is; if you have another hearing device, please speak to an usher to get a headset to enjoy the new technology.
Thanks to services provided by Audio Reader Network, audio description is available for some performances for visually impaired persons. Before the show, the program is read and the theater layout (including aisles, bathrooms, and exits) is described. During the performance, volunteers will describe sets, costumes, action and facial expressions. To listen, pick up a listening device from volunteers stationed across from the box office. Describers broadcast directly to these devices without disruption to the surrounding audience. For a listing of described events or to make a request, visit here.
•In order for our shows to begin promtly at 7:30 (and 2:30 matinees), please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to show start in order to give time to process tickets, get beverages and be seated.
