OPEN CAPTION PERFORMANCE

During open-captioned performances, an electronic text display is positioned to the side of the stage, which shows what the actors are saying or singing and describes sound effects on stage.
 
This benefits not only Deaf patrons or those with hearing loss, but also enhances the performance for the hearing audience as a whole who may have missed a word, phrase, joke, or lyric. The majority of patrons utilize the captions as a reference throughout the performance since they can easily glance at the display while not missing the performance on stage.

Our next Open Caption Performance will be Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley on Sun, Dec 8, 2019, 2:00 pm at the John Hirsch Mainstage.
