Accessibility

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

Both the Playhouse and Walker Farm are ADA-accessible. A Vertical Platform Lift in the lobby of the Playhouse provides ground floor access to the Restaurant and Cabaret for patrons with disabilities. Large-print programs and assisted-listening devices are available for all productions. There are family-friendly reduced-price tickets for youth and special 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 accessibility services, or if you or someone in your party will be in a wheelchair or bringing 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 is also wheelchair accessible. Spots can be reserved for patrons in wheelchairs 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 performances.

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 soon for information on the 2019 audio discribed performance.
