Open Captioning

One Sunday matinee for every Main Stage Pasadena Playhouse production offers open captioning for our audience. These performances are designed for patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing. Audience members requesting open captioning are seated in view of a video screen with text descriptions synchronized to the onstage action designed for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

Open captioning seating locations are intended for use by individuals who require the features of these seats and their companions. By purchasing tickets for open captioning seating through Pasadena Playhouse, you represent that you or a member your party requires the features provided by the seating locations being purchased.

Little Shop of Horrors Open Captioned Performance, Oct 6 at 2PM

Support for Open Captioning is provided in part by TDF. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
