Captioned, Audio Described and British Sign Language Interpreted Performances

Captioning services are available for selected performances:  While we advise the front section of our auditorium, we have no restricted view between our seats and the stage.

British Sign Language interpretation is available for selected performances.  We have no restricted view between our seats and the stage.  All our seats are suitable to see the signer.

This Season our accessible performances are:

Miracle On 34 Parnie Street

Miracle On 34 Parnie Street

BSL 06/12
Audio Described 10/12

 

Captioning is similar to television subtitling and gives Deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people access to live performances.  A captioner carefully prepares and cues text that appears in real time on units placed to the side of the stage, centrally or within the set.  

BSL interpreted performances allow people who are Deaf or for whom British Sign Language is their first or preferred language access to live performance.  BSL interpreters provide a linguistic and artistic interpretation.  The interpreter mostly stands to one side of the stage but sometimes interpreters are involved in the staging or the performance.

Audio Described performances support people who are blind or partially sighted to access live performance.  An audio-describer meets audience members to introduce set and characters by providing a verbal description which continues during the performance via a headset.  Sometimes there is a touch tour of the set and costumes before.
