A team of professionally certified ASL interpreters provide a sign language-interpreted performance, in addition to a pre-show overview and introduction to the play.
Sensory Seminars are held 90 minutes before each Audio Described/ASL interpreted performance, allowing patrons the opportunity to walk through the set, touch set pieces, feel costume textures, and handle key props. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. Email Access Coordinator Janet Dickson at email@example.com for details.
We have installed brand new assistive listening equipment in both our theaters. Both stages are now outfitted with dedicated microphones allowing patrons to gain a clear interpretation of the action taking place on stage when you reserve a pocket-sized FM radio.
Patrons who already wear a T-coil equipped hearing device can sync their earpiece to the receiver to improve sound quality.
If you are utilizing listening-assistance when you visit McCarter, please let us know about your experience. See a Front of House manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org to share your thoughts. We are all ears!

Spoken dialogue scrolls across a digital screen as the action occurs on stage. The caption unit is visible to the entire audience but is located in an unobtrusive position near the stage.
A relaxed performance is one that has been adapted to provide a relaxed and safe environment for individuals with autism, learning differences, or other sensory and communication needs so that they and their families may enjoy live theater together. The quality of the production still aligns with McCarter's high artistic standards, but small adjustments are made to certain technical elements (such as sound and light cues). In addition, at a relaxed performance, professional staff members from our partner organizations are on hand to assist parents and caregivers, a family restroom is available, and there are be designated activity and relaxation areas in the lobby.

McCarter’s Access Program is made possible through support from the C.R. Bard Foundation; Fund for the New Jersey Blind, Inc.; an endowment gift from the Gordon and Llura Gund Foundation; The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey; The Karma Foundation; and New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
