Queens Theatre is fully accessible to persons using wheelchairs, including wheelchair seating in all three performance venues. When purchasing tickets, let your box office associate know and they will reserve those seats for you.
A Sensory-Friendly or Relaxed Performance is 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. The performance is modified to allow for more audience movement. The house lights will remain on at a low level. Sound levels are lowered, especially for startling or loud sounds. Designated quiet areas are available.
The Claire Shulman Theatre is outfitted with infrared assisted listening devices. Please ask the front of house staff for more information.
Audio Description is available at scheduled performances. AD is a service which enhances experience for blind and visually impaired audiences through the use of special listening devices and an Audio Describer. The Describer, from a remote tech booth, speaks into a microphone which is connected to headsets worn by the visually impaired patrons both before the show begins, and between some lines to describe entrances, exits, and actions of the actors. Please see the Front of House staff for the listening device.
Sign language interpretation will be offered at scheduled performances. Interpreters will be located at the front of the left or right side of the stage. When purchasing tickets, please inform the box office to ensure you're seated with a clear line of sight to the interpretor.
Some performances will offer Open Captioning for Deaf and Hard of Hearing. The text of the performance will appear on a large monitor on the side of the stage. When purchasing tickets, please inform the box office to ensure your seats have a clear line of sight to the monitor.
