Open Captioning and Audio Description

Next Performance:
A Chorus Line, Sunday, June 22, at 2 p.m.
More information

At certain performances, we will present Open Caption and Audio Description service for patrons who request them. At Open Captioned performances, the dialogue and lyrics of the play are displayed on a captioning device at the side of the stage, so that patrons with hearing difficulties can read the words as they watch. At Audio-Described performances, a narrator uses a headset system to describe the action on stage to patrons, to allow those with visual impairments to follow the action of the show.

For tickets and information, please contact Jess Bien, General Manager, at boxoffice@muhlenberg.edu or 484-664-3087.
