- Our assistive listening system uses microphones during musical performances to enhance words spoken on stage by separating speech from the background noise. This system amplifies the actors and brings the sound directly into the patrons’ ears. The receivers are coupled with headphones and may be borrowed from the Box Office the night of a performance.
- Audio Description is the art of talking pictorially or becoming a “verbal camera lens,” to enable audience members who are blind or have low vision to hear descriptions of actions, body language, lights, costumes, scenery and other aspects of the production not conveyed by voices from the stage.
- A limited number of wheelchairs are available free of charge on a first come, first serve basis for use inside the NorShor and Depot theatres. Patrons may borrow courtesy wheelchairs if needed; please touch base with the House Manager the day of the performance.
