Services for patrons who are deaf or are hard of hearing:
- Learn more about our Access Shakespeare Pay-What-You-Can Program
- Assistive-listening devices (binaural earbuds and induction neckloops for use with t-coil hearing aids) are available for all performances at our Audience Services table just inside our lobby doors.
- ASL Duo-interpreter performances (see details below)
- Open-captioned performances (see details below)
ASL Duo-interpreter performances: All dialogue and lyrics are translated into American Sign Language by two certified interpreters (view bios). Please purchase your tickets in advance to participate in our Access programs. Programs with no attendance may be cancelled 48 hours prior to the show.
Open-captioned performances: CST offers open captioning, which features a text display of the words and sounds heard during a play. Controlled by a captioner watching the play from the back of the theater, the presentation of the text is synced live with the action onstage. Please purchase your tickets in advance to participate in our Access programs. Programs with no attendance may be cancelled 48 hours prior to the show.
This season, we are continuing our Access Shakespeare Pay-What-You-Can for patrons whose disability requires the use of our ASL-interpreted and Open-captioned services (plus one companion). Understanding that patrons requiring this service represent a broad financial spectrum, we’re putting it in their hands to pay what they can, to ensure that our productions are as available as possible, to the widest audience possible.
Choose a ticket price ranging from our full-price of $90 to as low as $35.
For both single ticket and subscription purchases, we are happy to offer a limited number of Pay-What-You-Can Program seats to the patron whose disability requires the use of this service and to one companion. Additional tickets can, of course, be purchased at full price.
