Listen: Gina Smith, Director of Education for Broadway Sacramento
Gina talks about their internship program with American River College and their programs with Sacramento County School's.
They have several opportunities available to help patrons with disabilities better enjoy our performances:
--Open Captioned Performance (Friday evenings)
--Audio Described Performance (Saturday matinees)
--Tactile Experience (Saturday matinees when possible)
--Sign Interpreted Performance (Sunday matinees)
--Wheelchair and Disabled Seating (all performances)
--Hearing Assistive Devices (all performances)
Audio Described Performance: Audio description provides blind and visually impaired patrons with a live, objective, and concise description of the action and key visual elements on stage, in between dialogue and/or music. Patrons requesting this service can borrow a listening device to listen, and are encouraged to arrive early to hear additional information about the show. Braille and Large Print programs are also offered at these performances.
Tactile Experience: Some Broadway On Tour and Broadway At Music Circus shows offer tactile experiences before the Audio Described performances on Saturday afternoons. These events offer blind and low-vision patrons an opportunity for some close-up, hands-on interaction with costumes and props from the show, accompanied by detailed descriptions from members of the wardrobe team.
