Services for the deaf and hard-of-hearing

American Sign Language-Interpreted Performances

ASL interpreters are located near the stage for patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing, seated in an area of the theater that gives the best sight lines to follow the interpretation and the action on stage. One signed performance will be offered for each regular season production at Civic Theatre. See below for ASL-Interpreted performance dates.
