Deaf and HoH Accessibility

The Fringe is very excited to get more involved with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community. We are working to improve our accessibility and welcome any feedback!

VOLUNTEERING:

We work with the Douglas College Program of Sign Language Interpretation to help interpret for our Deaf Volunteers. If you are Deaf or Hard of Hearing and would like to volunteer with us, we have positions available for you! Please click here for more information on how to sign up. If you are an ASL Interpreter and would like to volunteer your skills to interpret for Deaf or Hard of Hearing volunteers, please contact us!

INTERPRETED PERFORMANCE:

Please check back for a list of ASL interpreted performances at the 2017 Festival.

RESERVED SEATING:

If you are Deaf or Hard of Hearing and require priority seating to view any performance, please let our Front of House volunteers know. The house opens 15 minutes before show time and you will be granted priority access to the venue.

“FRIENDLY” SHOWS:

While we can’t interpret all of our shows, we’ve identified a few shows that may be more accessible to people in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community. Please check back for a list of shows with visually-based content. These shows are largely non-verbal and may also be appropriate for patrons with English as a second language.
