Audio-Described Performances: Patrons who are blind and or have low vision receive a headset for one ear that allows them to listen to a description of the key visual elements of a performance while still hearing the actors. These descriptions are inserted into natural pauses in the show. One audio described performance will be offered for each regular season production at Civic Theatre. See below for Audio-Described performance dates.
