ASL interpreters are located at the edge of the stage space for patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing, seated in an area of the theater that gives sight lines to follow the interpretation and the action on stage. At this time signed performances are not available for every production, please visit the individual show pages for specific dates and times.

For seating in view of the interpreters for a signed performance, look for the pink accessible seating when purchasing online for an ASL interpreted performance or call the box office at 269.343.2727.


What is a sensory-friendly performance?

Sensory-friendly performances are designed to create a performing arts experience that is intended for patrons who have autism or other social, cognitive and physical challenges that create sensory sensitivities and their families.

At sensory-friendly performances, accommodations will include:

  • Lower sound and light levels; all strobe light effects removed.
  • House lights on at a low level throughout the performance.
  • Audience members are welcome to stand, move around, and enter and leave the theatre as needed.
  • Designated quiet and calm space in the lobby.
  • Sensory supports available (fidgets, earplugs).
  • Audience members are welcome to bring their own manipulatives, seat cushions, comfort objects, headphones, electronics, special snacks, and other support items to the show.
