Audio Described Performances
We now offer an audio described performance and touch tour for every show in our season. We also produce Audio Described notes for each production and publish them on our website as soon as a show opens.
Audio Described notes, written copy or larger font copy of any show can be found on the respective show page where available.
Guide and hearing dogs are welcome by request to either sit in the auditorium or to be looked after by one of the Front of House team.
- To be able to freely enter and exit the auditorium when needed throughout
- Additional space in the auditorium; tickets will be sold at 70% max capacity
- A relaxed attitude to audience making noise in the auditorium
- Alterations to the sound, light or other theatrical effects where applicable (i.e. no strobe/flashing lights; lower volume sound)
If you use a hearing aid we have an induction loop in the foyer and theatre for hearing aid users which our Box Office staff would be more than happy to make available for you.
We also offer captioned performances for all our shows. During our captioned performances you are able to view the dialogue on a display screen that is placed above the stage or a tablet in your lap. The captions are delivered live so the audience can follow who is speaking as well as information like sound effects and music. Though usually for people who are deaf, deafened and hard of hearing, captioning can be useful to everyone, especially if English is not their first language.
We also live caption the post show talk after each captioned show. This will usually be with members of the cast and creative teams who have worked on the show. These events are free.
