Sign Language Interpretation

Sign Language interpretation is provided at the first Sunday afternoon performance of each regular season production. These performances are indicated by a green symbol on the production calendar. On these dates, a limited number of seats near the interpreters are reserved for patrons using this service.

Seats for Sign Language interpretation are held in reserve until three weeks prior to the performance. In the event that no ASL seating has been reserved, all ASL seating will be released to the general public and the Sign Language interpretation will be canceled. When ordering tickets, please indicate your need for seating in this section.

This offer is only valid on the afternoon ASL interpretation is offered. Special tickets provided in part by this theater, United Arts, Medtronic, and VSA Arts of Minnesota.
