McCarter is a barrier-free building and we seek to make our work available to all with ease and dignity. We have programs, facilities and services to provide support and ensure you have a spectacular experience. Please see below for a description of the supports we offer.
AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE (ASL)
A team of certified ASL interpreters provide a sign language-interpreted performance in addition to a pre-show overview of the play. One American Sign Language interpreted performance is scheduled for each Theater Series production.
AUDIO DESCRIPTION (AD)
Listen through an ear piece as trained audio describers provide a live description of key visual elements in the play without interfering with dialogue. One audio-described performance is scheduled for each Theater Series production.
OPEN CAPTIONING (OC)
Spoken dialogue scrolls across a digital screen as the action occurs.
Sensory-friendly performances provide a performing arts experience that is welcoming to all individuals who are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or other sensitivity issues and their families.
Our theatres offer wireless radio frequency hearing assistance receivers. Headphones are provided free of charge but guests are welcome to bring their own. Hearing aids equipped with t-coil technology can be synched for better sound quality.
