Accessibility

We are committed to making our facility and programs accessible to everyone in our community.

Both the Playhouse and OtherStages are ADA-accessible. A Vertical Platform Lift in the lobby of the Playhouse provides ground floor access for handicapped patrons to the West Town Eatery and Cabaret. Large-print programs are offered for all productions and assisted-listening devices are available for MainStage productions. There are family-friendly reduced price tickets for youth and special day-of-show discount tickets for Vermont residents. To better serve you, please let the box office know ahead of time if you or someone in your party will be needing any of the accessabilty services, or if you or someone in your party will be in a wheelchair or brining a service dog.

Wheelchair Access

The Weston Playhouse theatre auditorium, lobby, box office, and main floor restroom are wheelchair accessible. A ground level entrance to the auditorium is to the left of the main entry stairs and the Vertical Platform Lift provides access to the restaurant and Cabaret. Weston Playhouse at Walker Farm, our second stage, is also wheelchair accessible. Seats can be reserved for wheelchair bound patrons and their companions, please call the box office if you would like to reserve these seats.

Sign Language Interpretation (select performances only)

ASL-interpreted performances provide access to live theatre for members of the hearing-impaired community.

American Sign Language (ASL) is a complete, complex language that employs signs made with the hands and other movements, including facial expressions and postures of the body. It is the first language of many deaf North Americans, and is said to be the fourth most commonly used language in the United States. Fluency in ASL happens only after a long period of study and practice and theatre interpretation is, in itself, an art form.

With six weeks’ notice, we'll make every effort to provide ASL interpretation for groups of 10 or more at no cost. For more information, please email tickets@westonplayhouse.org

Infrared Listening Devices

Assisted listening devices are available at the Box Office for all MainStage performances at the Playhouse.

Large Print Programs


Large print programs are available for all productions. Ask your usher or pick one up at the Box Office.

Audio Description (select performances only)

Audio-description is a live narration of the visual elements of a production. The narration is scripted and rehearsed to be timed for pauses in the dialogue or musical interludes. Blind and low-vision patrons listen via a small headset receiver. Aisles between rows are quite roomy and guide dogs are welcome. Please let us know in advance if you will be bringing your dog. Please check back in the new year for information on the 2018 audio discribed performance.
