Audio Described Performances
For blind or visually impaired audience members a narrator will describe the visual elements of the performance in real-time as the action unfolds onstage during a show. This added description is relayed to guests through a pair of headphones.
A relaxed performance is designed to welcome audience members who would benefit from a more relaxed environment in which to enjoy the show. It is developed to address the needs of guests with sensory concerns, autism spectrum disorders, learning disorders, dementia, parents with small children, or anyone for whom the regular theatre experience can be challenging. This show is open to everyone.
A touch tour is an opportunity for tactile guided exploration of the set, props, and costumes from a show that gives visually impaired guests an added level of understanding and appreciation for the show being presented. The host will also provide a detailed description of the key design elements and a visual description of each of the characters in the play.
