Audio Described Performances

Audio Described

AD-logo

Audio description is a narration service providing a description of what is happening on stage. Theatregoers are  issued with headsets and sit in the auditorium with the headphone in one ear, listening to the description alongside the show.

Touch Tours

A touch tour before our shows allows blind or low vision patrons the opportunity to get up close with elements of the production. The theatregoer is  guided around and invited to  touch the set and props and meet the cast before the show.
