Open Captioned Performance Schedule

Open Captioning is a text display of all of the words and sounds heard during a production—very similar to closed captioning on your TV. Whether you just miss a single word or you have hearing loss too severe to benefit from the use of assistive listening devices, open captioning can keep you from missing out. There will be a tv screen displaying text at the side of the stage. Patrons requesting this service will be seated within view of the screen.

SENSORY FRIENDLY PERFORMANCES
