Porchlight’s Commitment to Accessibility
The new theatre is completely handicap accessible with an elevator to the balcony and lower levels. Additionally, as launched with the 2016/17 season, we are proud to offer an Open Captioned performance for each mainstage production.
You can enjoy Porchlight Music Theatre’s Mainstage shows with Open Captioning, a service provided for people with hearing disabilities who use assistive listening devices, hearing aids, cochlear implants, sign language or lip reading. For our 2017-2018 season, these performances will typically take place on the fourth Saturday of the run at the 4pm show. This option can be beneficial to anyone with any level of hearing loss.
Open captioning is a text display of words and sounds heard during an event. The display is positioned in such a way that it is open for anyone, but is best viewed from a particular seating area. It is considered passive assistance, a service that is there to use or ignore. No one is labeled as needing the captioning, and no special equipment is required.
For more information or to reserve seats with a clear view of the captions, please contact Dana Mroczek at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 773.777.9884 during business hours.
