Long Wharf Theatre is committed to ensuring access for all visitors and seeks to provide an equal opportunity for every individual to take part in, and experience our mission at work. We invite you to visit. Here is some information below to help you plan.
Is Long Wharf Accessible For Individuals With Physical Disabilities?
Long Wharf Theatre is always working towards being more accessible. Please inform the Box Office prior to the performance if wheelchair seating or assistance will be required for anyone in your party. For any additional feedback or suggestions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
I Have Difficulty Hearing, Are Assistive Listening Devices Available For Performances?
Both the Claire Tow Stage in the C. Newton Schenck III Theatre and Stage II are equipped with a hearing loop. To use the hearing loop, simply flip on the t-switch on your hearing aid or cochlear implant to activate the telecoil. No other equipment is necessary. If your hearing aid doesn’t have a telecoil, you will still need to obtain a headset, available from the Box Office prior to the show.
I Am Visually Impaired, Do You Offer Audio Described Performances?
Yes. We are excited to offer audio description services containing visual information necessary for the comprehension of each production.
Do You Offer Sensory-Friendly Items?
Sensory friendly guides and sensory bags are available pre-show at the patron information table. Bags include noise reducing headphones, two fidgets, a picture communication key ring, a visual story about visiting the theatre, a notebook, pen and crayons. A valid ID is required for check out.
Do You Offer Touch Tours?
Due to concerns resultant of COVID-19, we are discontinuing touch tours for the entirety of our 2021/22 season. We will revisit renewing the program in accordance with, and in response to, the recommendations and mandates of government health officials.
Do You Offer Open Captioned Performances?
Yes. We will continue to offer open captioned performances throughout our 2021/22 season.
