Assisted Listening System

Assisted listening devices are available for all main stage Stages Theatre Company productions. Devices can be picked up at the Box Office beginning 30 minutes prior to the performance. We require a photo ID or credit card be held at the Box Office while assisted listening devices are being used.

Audio Described (AD) Performances

For the performing arts Audio Description is a form of audio-visual translation, using the natural pauses in dialogue or between critical sound elements to insert narrative that translates the visual image into a sense form that is accessible to millions of individuals who otherwise lack full access. Audio Description will not affect patrons who have not requested the service.
