Audio Described Performances
For blind or visually impaired audience members, Audio Description paints a picture of what is happening onstage. The audio describer uses the natural pauses in the action to deliver a live narration to the listener's personal headset. Please book your free headset through the Box Office. Sometimes the audio describer is positioned in the audience and sometimes they are onstage.
Anyone attending an Audio Described performance is invited to attend a free Touch Tour in the theatre before the performance begins. This is an opportunity to explore the production a bit more closely through set, costume, props and even an introduction from the actors.
Audio and large print copies of our brochure are available on request from the Box Office.
