ASL Interpreter Bios: 

  • Katie Dinkel, NIC, works as a freelance Sign Language Interpreter in the twin cities. Katie began her interpreting career in 2007. She works in a variety of settings but her passion is theatrical interpreting.
  • Rebecca Rick, NIC, NADIII a recent transplant to Duluth, firmly believes that every play that she encounters is a predestined lesson into the deeper mysteries of Life. A graduate from Saint Paul College and a second generation interpreter, Rebecca has interpreted in the Twin Cities theatre community for the past 15 years. Some of her most beloved local projects have included Mixed Blood’s Next to Normal, Walking Shadow’s The River and Christians as well as Pro-Rata’s recent production of The Minotaur. Issued the Mentor of the Year award in 2015 by Minnesota’s leader in interpreting services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community, ASLIS, Mrs. Rick has found a passion for equipping fledgling interpreters with the opportunity of making theatre accessible to all.

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.
