Wheelchair seating is available in all theatres. Please arrive at the Allen Theatre entrance for Allen, Outcalt, and Helen Theatre performances. A Red Coat will assit you with a provided wheelchair and take you into the venue. No reservation is required.
Assistive listening devices (ALD's) will amplify the sound onstage. The receivers operate on radio channels that are unique to the Allen, Outcalt and Helen theatres and are heard through headphones. ALD's are available free of charge from the House Manager's office prior to each performance and are to be used without hearing aids.
For those who have hearing aids and/or cochlear implants with a "T" switch (telecoil), be sure to ask for a neck loop. The neck loop will work while your hearing aids remain in place.
Large print programs are available at all performances on a first-come, first-served basis at the House Manager's office.
A four-foot-long LED sign will scroll three lines of text from an experienced captioner in-sync with the spoken dialogue on stage.
