Captions are similar to television subtitles and give patrons who are deaf, deafened, or hard of hearing access to live performances. Captions can also be useful for those whose first language is not English. The actors’ words appear on display units at the same time as they are spoken or sung. These display units are placed in the set, next to the stage, or in the auditorium, and display speakers’ names, sound effects and off-stage noises.
For all Captioned performances, see our Upcoming Captioned Peformances.
