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:

We’re thrilled to have a show interpreted into ASL in 2016. Does Not Play Well With Others on Thursday, September 15 at 8:30pm will be professionally interpreted.

Theatre Terrific is also having their show Hidden Stories professionally interpreted on Friday, September  9, at 6:00pm.

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. Below is 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. Links will be live when tickets go on sale on AUGUST 4!
