Access Services

One of the theatre’s continuing goals is increasing accessibility to its programs. Feel free to contact us with your suggestions. For more information, call the theatre office weekdays at 612-333-2919.



Facilities are accessible for audience members using wheelchairs…

PLEASE NOTE: Because of the configuration of our seating area, we cannot take patrons using wheelchairs to their assigned front row after the show has started. Latecomers may listen to the first act in our lobby and cross the stage to their front row at intermission.



Assisted listening equipment… 

is available free of charge at every performance. A small earpiece and pocket-sized receiver amplify stage dialogue and sounds. We recommend you include the number of listening units you would like when making your reservation.



Assisted viewing service…

is available free of charge for patrons with impaired vision. Also known as “audio-description”, this service uses a trained describer who broadcasts descriptions of costumes, lighting, actors’ movements, and other visual details. The patron hears the sounds of the performance itself while the audio-description is “whispered in their ear” through a small earpiece between stage dialogue.

In addition to the audio-description, the performance may also include a pre-show “touching” (tactile) tour of props, costumes, and other technical elements of the production.

Assisted viewing is offered based on reservations, with tentative dates posted with the information for each individual show on this website.

Information about performances at other theaters that offer accommodations for patrons with vision or hearing loss can be found at Minnesota Access Alliance.



Service animals…

are allowed wherever people are allowed. Under Title II and III regulations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, a service animal is defined as:
1. a dog;
2. individually trained to do work or perform tasks;
3. for the benefit of an individual with a disability.
