Captioned Theatre Performances

What is a Captioned Performance?

These allow theatregoers with varying degrees of hearing to view the full text as it is spoken or sung, including sound effects and off-stage noises. These appear on a scrolling screen, positioned on or at the side of the stage.

Captioning can also be helpful to those who use English as a second language and for most audiences when interpreting difficult dialects within shows.

How do I use this service?

When booking, our Box Office staff will advise you of the best place to sit so that you have a clear view of the caption units.
