Audio Description

Audio description—available at no extra charge to ticket holders—offers live verbal description of the visual elements of selected performances. The service's trained audio describers use a transmitter and microphone to relay a pictorial description to patrons wearing earpieces attached to palm-sized receivers. Audio description clarifies details and provides background information, but it doesn't interfere with other key audible elements of a performance. Reservations are required at least two weeks in advance of the performance. Phone 814-238-0132 to reserve this service. Visit accessibility to learn more about the program.
