Theater Inclusion Program

We strongly believe that the power of theater should be shared with the widest possible audience. That’s why our Theatre Inclusion Performances
 were implemented – to ensure the access required to enjoy our productions regardless of an individual’s ability. Our programs include open captioning, ASL signed interpretation and audio description. In addition, we offer alternate format collateral materials, including Braille and large print study guides.

We’re also dedicated to creating “Sensory-Friendly” performances for children and adults with Sensory Processing Disorders and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). These shows are groundbreaking in their approach to inclusion and access for special needs audiences, and are designed to include the entire family in a safe and comfortable environment. Special accommodations will be provided, including noise cancelling headphones, earplugs, and modifications to sound and lighting. A professionally staffed “quiet room” will be available for any child or adult seeking respite from the stimulation of the live performance. Please reach out if you have any questions about these performances.
