In addition to providing accessible seating for all performances and events, we offer services for our patrons who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind or have low vision. Assistive listening devices are available for all performances.  Sign language interpretation, open captioning and audio description is offered at select performances.

Wheelchair/Accessible Ticketing Policy

Those purchasing wheelchair accessible seating may purchase one (1) wheelchair accessible seat and up to three (3) companion seats; any additional seats must be purchased in the regular seating areas. This policy ensures that we are able to accommodate all available and accessible wheelchair seats in our theaters.
